I work in the Grants and Contracts team, which is part of the University Research Office.
The team's role as a whole is to provide efficient, timely support to academics applying for research grants in the SAgE and HASS faculties.
I have worked in the University for over 5 years now, previously I have worked in Vacancy Services Management for Jobcentre Plus, and was a Team Leader in debt collection for a major mobile telephone provider.
As one of the Assistant Grants & Contracts Managers, I provide advice and support on a range of activities to staff in the research environment from the initial application through to the project set up.
As part of my role I am an authorised signatory on research applications.
