James Heeley - Management Accountant

James studied Accounts and Finance Management at Sheffield Hallam University, and after a few temp roles, found his home at the Key Fund in June 2014.

To start with, Key Fund was just another temp role but this quickly evolved, with a job offer as Finance Assistant. James ran with the opportunity taking on more responsibilities with his current role as Management Accountant. Working with the Finance team, he keeps Key Fund’s books in order and looks after payments and invoicing.

Cool around figures, it was always his ambition to be an accountant. Thanks to the social impact of Key Fund, the role turned into a brilliant fit. Born and bred in Sheffield, James grew up in one of its better areas. Seeing in his everyday life how Key Fund’s clients impact the more deprived parts of Sheffield has changed how he views his home city. Knowing first-hand the stories behind the enterprises working to bridge the gaps leaves him in awe. Seeing the enterprises in action, and knowing he’s helping to make a difference, gives him a huge sense of job satisfaction.
