Jo Schofield has been appointed the RMBF’s new accountant.
Ms Schofield brings 13 years’ financial experience in a variety of business, governmental, non-governmental and not-for-profit organisations, most recently as assistant accountant of Crown Entity Career Services.
Ms Schofield replaces Helen Barker in her new role.
“Helen left the finances in very good order, introducing a new accounting system that is seamless to use, and with her and Patricia Hargreaves’ (the RMBF’s accounts officer) hard work, I have been able to settle into the role,” Ms Schofield says.
“The Federation is very active in working with government and the rest of the construction sector to bring about the changes to the Building Act and Code, and it’s important to me to be involved in an organisation that is achieving something worthwhile.”
Registered Master Builders Federation chief executive Pieter Burghout says Ms Schofield’s addition to the team is highly valued.
“I believe Jo will be a great addition to our management team. She not only brings a wide variety of financial expertise, but her background working with governmental, crown entities and not-for-profit organisations has familiarised her with many of the financial practices we undertake here at Federation,” he says.
