In her PwC role, she is responsible for the firm’s overall approach to servicing more than 400 audit and non-audit charities.

At Saffery Champness, she will work alongside other London-based members of the firm’s not-for-profit practice group, including partners John Shuffrey, Cara Turtington and Russell Moore.
Hazell said: “I am very pleased to have been invited to join the Saffery Champness partnership. The firm’s focus on maintaining strong client relationships and its belief in a true partner-led service are both things which I care deeply about. The firm is a well-respected adviser in the not-for profit sector and I look forward to joining.”
