Ruth Crossley

Finance Manager

Meet Ruth Crossley, Finance Manager at Yorkshire Air Ambulance. Proudly residing in the vibrant town of Huddersfield, Ruth became an invaluable member of our YAA team in November 2020. It’s worth noting that Ruth’s journey began amidst the challenges of the second Covid-19 lockdown, which meant she didn’t have the chance to meet her YAA colleagues face-to-face for a remarkable six months!

Initially joining as a Finance Officer responsible for Purchase Ledger, In July 2021, Ruth was rightfully promoted to the position of Finance Manager, working closely with our Finance Director, spearheading Month End accounts and overseeing the rest of our talented finance team.

Speaking of why she loves working for YAA, Ruth said, “Working for YAA not only allows me to pursue what I love but also provides me with a profound sense of fulfilment, knowing that I am contributing to supporting our lifesaving missions across Yorkshire.”

Outside the realm of finance, Ruth embraces the joyful busyness of her life as a mother to three beautiful children. Creating cherished memories with her family is a top priority. Additionally, Ruth finds excitement in attending concerts, immersing herself in the electrifying atmosphere alongside her family and friends. She takes great delight in sharing her passion for music with her two older children, who now accompany her to many of these gigs!

Interestingly, Ruth once owned her own wedding stationery business. From designing and handcrafting wedding stationery to dressing the wedding venues, Ruth played a crucial role in making couples’ special days truly memorable.
