I have been at the Open University since 1986, and in the Faculty since 1991.
During this time I gained considerable experience across a broad spectrum of support roles (Course Team Assistant, Research Secretary and Secretary to the Sub-Deans, PA to the Dean). I was Faculty Services Manager and Programme Office Coordinator for Social Work.
I currently provide support to the Director Business Development and the Partnerships Manager alongside several Module Teams and the Youth Justice Team.
