Business Finance Manager

Chloe Reuben

"I have previously worked in a wide range of finance positions, including at a nursery setting where I developed most of my transitional skills through into my role as BFM. Working in a nursery setting inspired me to want to continue working with young people and further develop my skills. Working at Spring Hill School in this role is the perfect challenge for me.


In my spare time, I enjoy going to the gym and visiting my family back home in the West Country, and on the South Coast. I can’t wait to start exploring what Yorkshire has to offer!"
