Administration Team

Our College administration team is a diverse business. It includes registry, human resources, finance, estates, marketing, public relations, conferences and catering, course administration and numerous other activities. These jobs are demanding roles where some people apply their professional expertise in finance, marketing, human resources and other areas in addition to their administrative skills. Most staff working in an administrative function have to liaise with a large range of people across the International partnerships Network. Those in human resources, for example, often have responsibility for that function over a particular group of staff – academics, catering, and technicians, for example. People in finance must monitor the budgets and spending of resources for which they are responsible, liaising with those responsible for all spending and buying activities.
