Head of Finance
As Head of Finance I work with the Head of Department and Head of Administration in developing a financial strategy as well as providing leadership in financial planning activities. I prepare and manage the Department's growing annual budget and contribute to the Department's longer term strategic planning through costing and scenario modelling for new initiatives.
I provide detailed management information and specialist financial expertise to both the Head of Department and the Director of the Kennedy. My overall responsibility is for the Department's finance delivery to the Medical Sciences Division.
In my role I interact with the staff in the Medical Sciences Divisional office; University central finance staff; other Departmental Administrators and Finance Managers; the Oxford Universities Hospital Trust; external sponsors and with other institutions.
I have a BSc (Hons) in Microbiology from the University of Leeds and worked for the Public Health Laboratory Service for 7 years before moving south. I then worked in Industry for 9 years before joining the department, when it was called the Nuffield Department of Orthopaedic Surgery, in April 1998.
