Joanne took an unconventional route into Finance. Joanne originally studied Business and Management at University and then trained to be an Accountant but soon realised that was not for her. After a year travelling around the world, she then re-trained as a Teacher at the University of Manchester and went on to teach Business and Economics for 10 years. Following a small career break, Joanne joined Dunkley’s in 2015 as the Finance Manager and has not looked back.
Joanne plays a critical role in managing Dunkley’s internal finance from handling client financials to producing business plans, forecasts, and management reports. She is also responsible for managing the staff payroll and dealing with their pensions.
Alongside this, Joanne has taken the lead when it comes to systems development and project work enabling Dunkley’s to move forward and work efficiently.
Outside of work, Joanne enjoys spending time with her family, socialising with friends, and going to the gym. She also loves to travel and visit further afield places around the world.
