Is the Finance Officer for MECOPP and is based in the office in Edinburgh.
I joined MECOPP in September 2013 and am responsible for supporting the finance function of the organisation. Together with the finance assistant, I ensure the organisation receives funding when it is due. Managing cash flow is critical to enable MECOPP to pay its bills on time, pay staff salaries and generally to remain solvent. I am a part qualified accountant, and have a solid background in charity finance. For many years I worked as Finance Officer for a charitable Scottish Housing Association. Originally from Belfast I have lived and worked in England, Holland, Crete and Israel before making my home in Scotland. Married, with three children, I am interested in environmental issues and enjoy the countryside.
