Jonathan is a qualified chartered accountant specialising in mergers and acquisitions and is currently Director at EY, Strategy and Transactions in Manchester.  He has more than 10 years' experience of advising clients including corporates, public sector organisations, investors and lenders on financial due diligence, corporate restructuring and development of strategic plans.

Jonathan has been working alongside the Tutor Trust since its inception, providing pro bono financial advice and mentoring.  Right at the start he collaborated with Nick Bent and Abigail Shapiro developing the initial 3 year business plan, which helped the charity successfully obtain its first round of charitable funding.  He is very excited to become a Trustee of Tutor Trust, and to work alongside the rest of the team, driving forward the strategy of narrowing the education attainment gap that exists in both primary and secondary for pupils from disadvantaged backgrounds.

Jonathan originally studied Law at Manchester University, and though he has worked both across the UK and Internationally, is proud to be back in the North.
