ESRC Doctoral Training Centre Administrative Manager, Faculty of Financial & Business Services



I am responsible for the strategic and operational management of the ESRC-funded Doctoral Training Programmes at the University of Nottingham. This includes the Nottingham ESRC Doctoral Training Centre, and the Nottingham operation of the new Midlands Graduate School Doctoral Training Partnership consortium, in conjunction with five other universities across the Midlands.

I have worked in higher education since 2008, working in various roles including Planning, Examinations and Assessments Manager, and Research Administrator, before joining the Graduate School at Nottingham in February 2011.

The University of Nottingham has in excess of 100 current ESRC-funded postgraduate students, who study across the full range of Social Sciences.
