I have been a qualified Chartered Accountant for over 25 years and have 20 years' experience in the charitable and not-for-profit sectors, acting as Treasurer and Finance Director of organisations both within and outwith Scott-Moncrieff, north and south of the border.
My greatest career achievement is continuing to support a wide and diverse range of charities on an on-going basis through running Scott-Moncrieff’s ‘charity office service’. My recent work within Scott-Moncrieff includes strategy reviews and ensuing constitutional and organisational changes, dealing with sustainability issues, organisations changing legal form, the sale of heritable property and tendering provision of advisors.
I work with middle sized charities or not-for-profit organisations, giving them the benefits of professional expertise without the cost of a full-time employee and bringing objective judgement, professional standards and current technical expertise. The part of my job that I enjoy the most is communicating with Trustees and Boards or Committees and enabling them to make truly informed decisions resulting in the final outcome of enhanced impact for the organisation.
