Before arriving at UNW, Anne gained a wealth of experience within the sector, spending seven years as Trust Manager with The North of England Civic Trust where she gained experience of charity funding first hand. Prior to this she, spent 16 years - at PwC, latterly working as part of their national Charities team. She also holds the Diploma in Charity Accounting (DChA), being amongst the first to gain the qualification when it was introduced in the UK.
