I joined the Nuffield Department of Surgical Sciences in July 2013. I deal with all aspects of HR advice, administration, recruitment and support. The HR function at NDS forms part of the Business Administration Unit.

On a day to day basis the Business Administration Unit is responsible for the non-academic management and administration of the department and associated units. 


I can assist with queries relating to:

  • Recruitment and selection;
  • Casual employment and use of agency staff;
  • Pre-employment checks and visa applications/extensions;
  • Payroll administration and HRIS maintenance;
  • Formal departmental induction and probation monitoring;
  • Contract management, including End of Fixed Term Contract process, extensions, re-grading and advice on terms of conditions of employment;
  • Sickness absence management, annual and other types of leave administration and advice;
  • Inducting and facilitating visitors/affiliate agreements;
  • Performance management;
  • Managers' training and development;
  • Succession planning.
