• Jessica McKinlay ACCA

    I work for ACC Liverpool Group, as Assistant Director of Finance. The group operates the Liverpool event campus, which most notably includes the M&S Bank Arena. I’m excited to be leading a finance team that’s contributing to the growth and sustainability of one of the City’s best assets. Prior to this I was a finance business partner at Merseyrail, again shaping the use of another of the City’s best assets, and before that I worked in various roles in local NHS organisations; providing management accounts support to front line managers that delivered invaluable healthcare to the region. I got involved with the panel to strengthen my voice as an accountant and help to shape development opportunities for accountants in a city that I’m proud to call home and really advocate for the profession across the Liverpool patch.

    I currently work in the Financial Services sector and have done since 2001. Prior to that I worked in practice and for a company running a number of nursing homes. I qualified as an ACCA member in 1995. I joined the panel in order to share experience with other ACCAs and potential ACCAs.
