“Before joining the College I did not appreciate how similar it is to any other business. The skills I have gained in Commerce and Industry and just as relevant here, and the current challenges around funding mean the College continually needs to look to increase income and become more efficient – this is the part of the Finance Director’s role I really enjoy”
