I am the Finance Office Team Leader responsible for the supervisory management of the Finance team.  As well as the Faculty, the Finance Office covers the areas of ARM, SCVA, BUR (Bursaries and Widening Participation), DSC (Direct Student Costs) and CON (Conferences). I ensure that work in all areas is carried out in a timely manner in respect of the Finance Office Service Standards and the deadlines set by Central Finance.  I ensure that the University Financial Regulations and Accounting Standards are adhered to by the Team and users of the department.

I am the primary contact for Management Accounts for ARM, guiding Budget Holders in the preparation and monitoring of the five year financial plans.  I regularly meet with Budget Holders to help inform decisions about how their budgets can be utilised. I also deputise for the Faculty Finance Manager in his absence.

In my spare time I enjoy walking my dog and have a great passion for baking. I am a member of the Sportspark, where I enjoy spinning, body pump and body balance.

The main responsibilities of my role are overseeing the "in year" income and expenditure within ARM (Admissions, Recruitment and Marketing), comparing this with the expected forecast outturn and making adjustments where necessary.  I provide budget information to help inform decisions about what expenditure can be made.

In my spare time I enjoy swimming, cycling, running, weight training, taking part in triathlons and spending time with my family and friends.

My main responsibilities are comparing the actual income and expenditure against the expected forecast outturn for each of the budget areas I oversee. Key areas of focus are correctly distributing the budgets for BUR (Bursaries and Widening Participation) and monitoring the expenditure for the OFFA return. In DSC (Direct Student Costs), the main area of responsibility is monitoring the expenditure on student scholarships, medical centre bills and commission payments to agents of overseas students. In CON (Conferences) my key focus is monitoring the income received on each conference and the corresponding impact this has for central departments. With MSC and SRU the key focus is ensuring expenditure and income is in line with expected forecasts.

 

I enjoy spending time with my family and arts and crafts.
