M404, Melbury House

I joined RDS (and BU) in December 2015 as an administrator with the goal of moving into Project Management. From August 2016 I have been appointed as the Project Delivery Officer for the Faculty of Science and Technology. My role as the Project Delivery Officer encompasses all aspects of the post-award stage of a research project. I am responsible for providing support to academic colleagues, advising on contracts, managing budgets and helping ensure the project timeline is managed. Previously I worked as an Assistant Manager for a car rental company for 2 years gaining line management experience (we aren’t all bad, honest).

I studied as an undergrad at BU, graduating in TV Production and I look forward to contributing to the growth of BU and its research interests. Outside of work I enjoy working on my car, driving, visiting friends, skiing and diving (not all at once).

I am the Finance & Systems Adviser within the  Project Delivery team. I can offer help/advice on all aspects of research finance, including but not limited to, sales invoicing, VAT, expenditure monitoring, forecasting etc. I also look after the Research Enterprise Database (RED) and pFACT (costing) systems. If you are having access issues or other, I’m the man to sort it out!

Prior to joining BU, I worked in the private sector and for 23 years worked for an engineering company as Management Accountant (6 years) and then Financial Controller (17 years).

Outside of work, my passion is football, either watching (my beloved West Ham Utd), playing or coaching. For the past 10 years I have coached a Burton Youth football team (now U15s). When I’m not on a football pitch, you can usually find me rummaging around second hand record shops looking to add to my already vast collection of vinyl.
