Jenny Ehrhardt

Group Chief Finance Officer

Board Member

Jenny joined the NHS in 2000 on the Graduate Management Training Scheme and has worked across many different organisations since then, including Ambulance and Commissioning, although mainly in Acute Trusts. She was appointed Group Chief Finance Officer for Manchester University Foundation Trust, the largest Trust in England, in May 2020, following an eight-month period as Deputy Chief Finance Officer.  Prior to this role she was Deputy Director of Finance at Leeds Teaching Hospitals, where she had worked since 2014, and had previously been Deputy Director of Finance at Harrogate and District FT for over five years.

She has a family background in the NHS and has always seen the importance of financial teams working extremely closely with clinical and operational colleagues to deliver excellent patient care.  To that end, over many years, she has supported and developed her teams to deliver high quality finance and procurement support.

Jenny read Maths at St Anne’s College Oxford and is a member of the Chartered Institute of Public Finance and Accountancy.
