About Diane

Diane has 14 years experience at CIMA as a Manager in Student Recruitment looking after Universities and Colleges of Further Education across the UK and is passionate about linking education to employment and a professional qualification.

Her role involves building relationships with academics across all levels at universities to actively engage their students in promoting a career in accountancy. This can involve skills sessions, business games and short lecture visits with their students. It is very rewarding to be able to talk about how CIMA can help their career and how their degree fits in with the CIMA qualification. It is always great to see the look on a students face when they realise the value of what they are studying!

Another exciting part of Diane’s role is working with universities to enhance their degree structure through accreditation and partnerships.

Diane’s background has been mainly in graduate recruitment and this knowledge helps to engage with students and academics where the graduate employment experience can be brought to life.
