Helen Heyworth

BSc (Hons)

NDORMS Head of Finance

As Head of Finance, I work with the Head of Department and Chief Operating Officer 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 the Head of Department and Institute Directors. My overall responsibility is for the Department’s finance delivery to the Medical Sciences Division.

I work closely with the Heads of Operations of the Kennedy Institute of Rheumatology and the Botnar Institute for Musculoskeletal Sciences, as well as the Grants and Finance Manager.

In my role I interact with staff in the Medical Sciences Divisional office; University central finance; 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 seven years before moving south. I then worked in Industry for nine years before joining the department, when it was called the Nuffield Department of Orthopaedic Surgery, in April 1998.
