Faculty Communications 

As a member of the central Internal Communications team, my aim is to ensure that staff are kept up to date and informed with what is happening both across the University and at a local level. Working closely with Danielle Allen, the SSH Faculty Operations Manager, I share information using staff email, the monthly news bulletin, our SSH intranet site and social media.

If you have any faculty related events, research or local success stories that you would like to share, you can email me  ! SSH Comms or phone #5664 and I would be happy to have a chat about how I can support you moving forward.

Please follow us on Twitter to get up to date news and information about what is happening in the faculty and University on a daily basis
