About Faith Mukanganwa
Faith enjoyed a varied carrier in finance and accountancy undertaking various, managerial and leadership roles in companies which include KPMG Chartered Accountants, HBOS, NHS, Leeds City Council and running her own Consultancy Business before she joined the university in 2009.
Faith started her carrier in Accountancy at KPMG Chartered Accountants as an Assistant Internal Auditor in 2000. At KPMG she undertook audits in local authorities and mines, recommending useful strategies for clients which were successfully implemented. This job laid the platform for her future consultancy work. She then enjoyed a varied career in financial accountancy and in lecturing at both undergraduate and masters levels Leeds Beckett University and local colleges. Faith extended her experience by working for a number of Chartered Accountants and various companies undertaking finance, administrative, managerial and leadership roles including training and developing individuals, planning, managing various projects and motivating teams to achieve set objectives and intended learning outcomes.
Between the years 2003- 2006 she pioneered a number of community projects including “Xpect” from scratch which benefited over 3000 young people in the East end of London. Having successfully completed the Xpect Project, Faith helped other corporate charities and other community leaders to replicate the good model she had developed and expand their capacity. This led to the development of her consultancy business helping small to medium enterprises and corporate charities to grow their organisations.
She currently works as a Senior Lecturer and Course Leader for MSCAF at Leeds Beckett University. She is also the Module leader for Management Accounting Information Management (MAIM) and Contemporary Issues In Management Accounting.

In 2010, Faith wrote a resource paper - Alternative fundraising methods for refugee community organisations (rcos) on behalf of the charity which commissioned me. The paper was aimed to help third sector organisations build their capacity.
She has been using most of my research skills to develop new modules including AFDM, MAIM, Contemporary Issues in Accounting and updating resources on the virtual learning environment. Faith intends to take time out and engage in scholarship research in order to start publishing in reputable journals in the foreseeable future.
