About Irina

When did you start working for LtL and what does your job involve?

I joined the LtL Trust in 2007, working firstly as Finance Officer and then as Finance Project coordinator. In 2011 I was promoted to Finance Manager – a role which allows me to use my skills and experience to the full.

I am responsible for management and implementation of the Trusts financial systems and processes, ensuring that all legal financial requirements are met, the Trust’s finances are robust, resources are used efficiently and project budgets are managed to the highest possible standard. I am a ACCA qualified and Fellow Member of the Association of Accounting Technicians backed with a teaching degree in Mathematics and a further degree in Finance (including Economics and Accounting). I have over twenty year’s financial experience.

I have a teaching degree in Mathematics and my work in high school helped me to improve my confidence in communication skills and public speeches. A further degree in Finance (including Economics and Accounting) helped to understand the micro and macro economics pictures, risk assessments and efficient planning tools. A Diploma in management and leadership equipped me with additional experiences to support finance development to my colleagues to ensure a high level of competence and confidence in meeting financial administration requirements.

I have been fortunate to have worked in international companies before and in doing so have developed my interest in to unique traditions of different nations whilst at the same time developing my linguistic skills.

Irina’s LtL Experience

What has been your best day at LtL and why?

Spending the day with the whole team in Edinburgh – celebrating our success and making new friends!

Why a fork?

In my free time, when not further studying, I love to travel both home and abroad. Being a member of both the National Trust and English Heritage allows me to visit wonderful places and learn about art, design and the way of life of years gone by. Why a fork? Well I love gardening and apart from an artistic eye a gardener’s best friend is their fork!!
