Hi, I’m Jenny and I’m the Finance Co-Ordinator for National Theatre Wales. My journey to National Theatre Wales has seen me work at amazing, raving music festivals and travel all across the World from Europe to Asia, and America to Africa. Six years ago I decided to swap my festival wellies and holiday bikini for a calculator and Microsoft Excel, and embark on a career in the finance sector.
I am currently studying towards an AAT qualification, and hoping to progress towards an ACCA qualification next year (for all non-finance geeks this means I’ll be a fully qualified accountant). At National Theatre Wales I am responsible for all things finance based, but it’s not all numbers and spreadsheets for me here. We’re all encouraged to be a part of every production and broaden our knowledge of the theatre in general. It’s a fun, exciting work environment and with so many different people and innovative projects, it really is a dream job.
Away from work I like animals, especially pandas, ice cream and sleeping late on Saturdays.
