Background

Introduction

I have been in the role of School Learning and Teaching Administrator for the School of Engineering since November 2017 after returning from maternity leave.


Background and previous roles in the University

I have worked in the University since 2005 beginning my career in the School of Maths and Stats as the PG Secretary covering maternity leave.   My first permanent role was in the School of Agriculture, Food and Rural Development in 2006 as a Clerical Assistant.  I left in 2008 to work as the PA to the Head of Student Progress which allowed me to gain a lot of knowledge of the central processes.  In 2009 I came back to the School of Agriculture, Food and Rural Development as Joint Honours Coordinator, this role then developed into the Teaching Support Coordinator and then in 2011 I was promoted to Teaching Support Administrator.  I left to have a baby in October 2016 and have returned to work now part time in a new role in the School of Engineering.
