Jackie Byrne - Director

My name is Jackie Byrne. I have known and worked with Iain for ten years.

I welcomed his invitation to join Redrambler as a consultant.

I have worked in schools since 1997, starting as a Finance Clerk in a special school, followed by Finance Manager at Frodsham College, Business Manager at Stretford Grammar School, and Finance Director at The East Manchester Academy.

I have a wealth of experience and also have been the Vice Chair of the Trafford and Manchester School Business Manager Forums.


I am proud to have achieved a number of qualifications during my career including CIPFA Financial Reporting in Academies, BA (Hons) School Business Management, IOSH (Institute of Safety and Health, Managing Safely), Diploma in School Business Management and Certificate in School Business Management. I am also AAT (Association of Accounting Technicians) qualified.


I am an exceptionally organised and efficient person with excellent time management and communication skills.


Having known Iain for a number of years I am delighted to have the opportunity to work with him at Redrambler 'helping schools achieve more'.

"School business leaders have significant responsibilities for financial and operational strategic management, so it is essential that they receive quality advice from professionals who understand the Education sector. Iain Blair was my predecessor as Chair of the Manchester Secondary Schools Business Managers’ Forum for a period of five years and was elected by his peers as it was clear that his wealth of experience and detailed financial knowledge would prove invaluable in leading the forum of schools."
