Our Team > Emma Carter


My role is to oversee the running of the finance function, making sure that the processes, procedures and systems are appropriate, up to date and are being followed. I help prepare the monthly management accounts, the annual financial statements and work as part of the SWM management team, supporting the Chief Executive and the board.


After working in finance for both the private sector for a large retail chain, and for the public sector in Higher Education I now specialise in supporting charities and not-for-profit companies in the West Midlands with their financial management. After working in a variety of roles I decided to focus on this sector in order to use my professional skills to make the greatest impact and difference for the area I live in.

I have held a number of voluntary positions including as the finance lead and chair for a large membership organisation. More recently I have been appointed as the non-student finance trustee for charity and campaigning organisation People & Planet.

Outside of work I enjoy spending time with my partner and his three children, going to live music events, and working my way through a large pile of unread books!
