Staff Profile

Joanne Redshaw

Operations Administrator

Background


My University career started in October 2012 when I joined Procurement Services as a Purchasing Assistant. After 5 years I took on a 9 month secondment as an Administration Officer in Accommodation Services, which led me onto my latest position in the School of Engineering. I am currently part of the Operations Team in the Cassie Building, working with students, academics and learning & teaching staff. 

As Operations Administrator, I am responsible for the general administrative support in the Front Office, which includes purchasing, assisting with the running of events, administering post, maintaining office equipment, preparing routing correspondence and diary management. I also manage allocation of duties and workload of staff, in liaison with the Operations Team Leader. 

Before joining the University I was a Purchasing Assistant in industry for 5 years, responsible for raising purchase orders, monitoring stock levels and chasing deliveries.
