What I do

Laura is Nesta’s Financial Controller. She is responsible for producing the monthly management accounts and leading on the budgetary and forecasting processes.


Before joining Nesta, Laura worked at BBC Media Action and had several roles including Head of Central Finance and most recently Donor Compliance Manager. Prior to that Laura worked at PwC in the Investment Management Tax team.

Outside of work she is a Trustee of Drivers for Change which takes participants on a journey across the UK exploring how social enterprise, private business and the arts can come together to create social change. Laura is also a Trustee of BACE, a small charity that she co-founded which provides education and healthcare to rural communities in The Gambia.

In her spare time Laura enjoys running and cycling and she also loves to travel.
