Carol trained in accountancy and has spent her working life in the not for profit sector. This includes 20 years as a CEO - twelve of which were at a hospice in Northern England.
Her trustee knowledge and experience comes from both reporting to Boards as a senior manager and from previous roles as a Trustee in a number of charities. She has recently finished as Vice Chair and Chair of the Audit and Risk Committee for an open knowledge charity, and is currently in the role of Managing Trustee for a grant making trust. She also works part time as COO for a church which runs unemployment and youth programmes.
Carol has been blind for over 20 years, so has a practical interest in the work of RiDC.
