I qualified with PwC in 2000 and specialise in Public Sector Finance. For the last 14 years I have managed my own business providing consultancy support to public sector, charitable and private organisations, including educational establishments. My roles have included supporting staff at all levels up to and including the Board.
From 2009 – 2015, I was a governor at Tyntesfield Primary School and was the Chair of Finance Committee. My responsibilities, from a financial perspective were primarily to support the governing body; head and school in ensuring it had a sound financial strategy, provided value for money and had robust procurement and financial systems to enable the school to discharge its statutory responsibilities.
