RKEO Project Administrator
M404, Melbury House
Hello, I am Charmain Lyons, the Project Administrator within RKEO for the Faculty of Management, Media & Communications and Professional Services.
I am responsible for providing administrative support to the Project Officer and academics, for all aspects of activity associated with awarded projects and the management, maintenance and processing of financial documentation.
I have been working at BU since 2010, and excluding a one year secondment in Marketing & Communications, I have worked in RKEO. Before BU, I worked in both the private and public sectors and my roles included FE course management and coordination, business development, sales, project management, staff training and HR. I also worked as an UK/International Events Manager for a worldwide IT consultancy organisation which enabled me to visit and work in Monte Carlo, Munich, Paris, Amsterdam and the US.
Outside of BU, I am an English & ESOL Learning Support Assistant and support ESOL, English and British Sign Language Tutor. I also organise and promote Northern Soul, Motown, 60’s & 70’s soul music events.
