Acting Head Of Administration & Finance
BA, MSc, MCPD
I am currently the Acting Head of Administration and Finance, reporting to Professor Kia Nobre; I am responsible for ensuring the smooth running of the Department and work alongside colleagues to provide a comprehensive administrative and financial service, from booking travel and conferences to managing communication channels, processing office moves, overseeing budgets, to simply recruiting the very best people available.
I have 17 years of experience working at a strategic level and have worked in both public and private sector organisations. I spent seven years with Hitachi Europe Ltd., Research and Development, as their Senior Research Administrator, managing satellite laboratories within European Universities. I also spent five years auditing Universities for the General Optical Council, ensuring both undergraduate and postgraduate programmes met the requirements for accreditation.
I have an MSc in Human Resource Management and a BA (Hons) in Business Administration; I am a chartered member of the Chartered Institute of Personnel Development.
