Director of Finance and Operations
As Director of Finance and Operations in the Nuffield Department of Medicine (NDM), Ed’s role, alongside Bron Marguerie de Rotrou, is to ensure all aspects of the Department’s Professional Services deliver high quality support to enable the Head of Department to deliver against his academic strategy. In practice, this means ensuring that effective support is provided through HR, Finance, Grants, Facilities, Communications, Graduate Teaching support and other professional services to the academic units of the NDM.
Additionally, Ed has a specific element of his role which relates to supporting the NDM’s Overseas Programmes in Thailand, Vietnam and Kenya. These are flagship programmes which are supported by the Wellcome Trust and require alignment of University support structures with local operations to enable the delivery of high quality research in international settings.
