James is a Finance Manager and has been working in the charity sector since 2007. He is currently working as a Finance Director (maternity cover) for a charity that supports children in the music industry.
In the past, James has worked for charities that support adults with learning disabilities and young people with cancer, he has also worked for local organisations such as Aardman Animations and Watershed.
In his role at Watershed (also a registered charity) he put together the management accounts, reported on specially funded projects and worked on the year end accounts. His role there was a part of the local cultural economy and is one of the reasons he’s joined Bricks, so he can help support upcoming artists and to keep Bricks sustainable.
Although James has previously been involved in board meetings, being a treasurer is new to him but it’s something he’s wanted to do for a while. He lives in St Annes and is pleased to supporting a charity close to home.
