Kay worked at the Centre from January 2006 to July 2017, the 3rd member of staff employed as PA to the Director. During the course of the first couple of months she also took on the HR function. During that year the Centre gradually recruited more staff and then along with Adi Himpson she took on the challenges of organising the move to the new building in Keble Road in January 2007, which involved lots of hard work and late nights! Her latest role at the Centre was HR and Finance Manager.
Kay previously worked in retail and industry in accounting and administration roles. She holds a part qualification (level 2) in CIMA which she undertook whilst working as an Assistant Accountant at Hytec Information Systems, after being made redundant from there she quickly discovered that she wanted to work in Administration, with a particular preference for HR. She has completed a degree in HR and has also passed her year 1 MBA taster course.
Kay is now providing her HR expertise to the University's Department of Earth Sciences in South Parks Road.
