Carol Rudge


I lead the NFP group at HW Fisher and am Head of Coaching. I have worked in the sector for 30 years having followed my passion to become a specialist in this area not long after qualifying as a chartered accountant.

My experience extends across charities, universities, independent schools, trade unions and membership bodies and I have worked with a very diverse range of clients in terms of both size and activities. This has enabled me to develop significant expertise across all aspects of accounting, assurance and governance as well as strategic issues and risk.

I am a member of the Charity Commission’s SORP committee which gives me first-hand knowledge of the technical direction of travel for the sector. I have also been a member of an audit committee of a large international charity.

I am an accredited coach and really enjoy my coaching activities as I strongly believe that coaching can make a real difference to individuals. I am also a passionate believer in EDI.

I joined HW Fisher as a partner in 2021 having previously been a partner and global head of Not for Profit at Grant Thornton for many years.
