I have been working as an accountant and accounting technician in the London not-for-profit sector for over 20 years now. I started my career working as a part-time payroll worker and peripatetic book keeper for the Local Accountancy Project in Southwark whilst completing my research degree in earth sciences. Since that time, I have continued to work in the sector for highly regarded charities, including the Barnet Citizens Advice Bureau and the Evelyn Oldfield Unit in north London, before joining the West Euston Partnership part-time in late 2014. Over the years I have developed a passionate interest in the challenges of achieving financial sustainability in the sector, and I’m committed to helping West Euston Partnership to achieve its vision, with the short-term aim of helping the organisation to manage change in the sector and increase its reserves for longer term sustainability. I’m currently also the Trust Accountant for the Hampstead Wells and Camden Trust in north London.
