What do you do at Carefree?

As finance manager I oversee all Carefree’s monetary matters from monitoring and reporting on the various funding streams to setting and monitoring annual internal budgets through the year, supported by the finance and admin team I report to the board, external stakeholders and management on all aspects of Carefree’s finances.

What do you like about working at Carefree?

To me Carefree has a values based culture, led by young people’s needs. It is always inspiring being a part of such a talented team who are so passionate about the meaningful work they do. 

I believe that if given the opportunity young people can and will make positive differences. This is very close to my heart and most definitely makes my work feel valuable and worthwhile – I am proud to be a part of the Carefree family.

Can you say a bit about your past experience and qualifications?

I am AAT qualified and have 17 years’ experience working in finance. I have worked for Carefree for 10 years which has enabled me to hugely develop my knowledge and experience of voluntary sector finance.

What do you enjoy doing when you are not working?

When I’m not working I like to exercise,  paddleboard, see live music, sign up for a challenge like a mud run or a race but most of all spend time with my amazing family.
