Cara Cornforth

Growing up, Cara never thought she would end up in finance. Originally from Indonesia, she moved to London in 2017.

Since then, it has been non-stop numbers. She worked part-time in finance throughout university, amongst other things. Once graduating with her accounting and finance degree from a university in London in 2020, she dove headfirst into full-time accounting roles.

Cara loves working with numbers and finds balancing and helping to simplify processes, as well as collaborating with others, supremely satisfying. She is hardworking, strategic, always keen to learn, and has found working at the OC a breath of fresh air. The partnership structure within the OC is something she highly appreciates, as not only is it nurturing her growth, but it also simultaneously motivates her to go above and beyond in supporting SMEs.

Outside of work Cara is a fashion fiend, and always does her best to help the environment (and her finances) by only buying and selling second hand. She also has a passion for photography, on both sides of the lens, having previously worked in the industry during her uni days.

Whatever time she has left would be spent on obsessing over her fur baby Bernie, 26 houseplants, keeping the house and garden habitable, and what seems to be something from the very distant past, music festivals and travelling far abroad.
