What do you consider your strengths?

I am an independent thinker and enjoy analysing the detail to really understand complex problems and key financial drivers. I take pride in my attention to detail and delivery of reports, ensuring that data is accurate and insights are timely, relevant and of high quality. I have strong communication skills and enjoy working closely with the consulting team to partner with them and help add value to their project financials.

I enjoy coaching and supporting others in the team, continually seeking efficiencies to simplify complex processes and spreadsheets to generate the insights that we require. Collaboration across the team is key to support our business goals.

Life outside of work

Outside of work I enjoy adventure, the outdoors and playing sport. I am a keen mountain biker and love to explore new trails to test my abilities and fitness while training up my trail dog. When recovering from inevitable injuries I enjoy regular adventures with our camper van and tents to see the remote hills and beaches of Scotland.
