I have been an accounting lecturer for the past 7 years. Prior to lecturing I mostly worked for retail businesses, from high growth start-ups to mature multi-billion pound turnover international organisations, throughout the UK. My earlier years were in small retail companies predominantly within the music industry. I then enjoyed a long career in management within Tesco’s. I have also worked at the Royal Bank of Scotland within the derivatives and structured notes area.
