Jill Hewitt has worked for Moneypenny Services since 1989. Starting out as an accounts assistant she then worked her way up to be the production accountant/financial controller on films such as Muriel’s Wedding, Paradise Road, Oscar and Lucinda and Moulin Rouge.
Currently, Jill is working as the Training Director at Entertainment Partners powered by Moneypenny Services. Her informal role as a mentor to emerging accountants over the past decade has now been expanded to a full-time position to help with the critical shortage of production accountants and assistants that the industry now faces.
Her role includes running both short and long courses for AFTRS, and more recently Netflix, and other independent training bodies, setting up new productions to succeed with the right team, and mentoring the right candidate who wishes to step up into the financial controller position.
