Hi dear reader.
I am one of a team of five project officers (PDO), I am the lead PDO for BUBS and Professional Services and support parts of all faculties, currently I am available only via MS Teams.
So what does my role cover? Well pretty much anything after the award of funding, so for example, contract negotiation, invoicing funders, monitoring and end of award audit support. Too much to list here!
I have worked here at BU since May 2013 but prior to that I was a finance manager and project manager in various guises over the last 30 years working in the third sector, local government and Royal Mail. Going back even further in time I was an engineer – which is why my handwriting is so poor (any excuse will do).
Out side of work I am a self taught traditional building conservation guru, if you have damp or rot issue in your house talk to me.
