I am the Head of Procurement at the Institute of Cancer Research and have been in post since February 2000. The Procurement Team at ICR manage and support the application processes for Requisitioning, Stores & Goods Receiving, Purchase Order Processing and Invoice processing including requisition punch-out and electronic invoicing via the Parabilis Marketplace.
The ICR has been using Unit4 Business world since August 2003 and I was on the project team for the selection and implementation of Agresso 5.4 which included Financials, Logistics and Project Costing & Billing (PCB). ICR went live with HR & Payroll in April 2015 and are planning to implement the Award Management and Research Costing and Pricing (ARCP) solution.
Prior to starting at the ICR I worked in Life Sciences initially as a Microbiologist, then production management leading to specialising in procurement. I have a Masters in Procurement and am a Member of the Chartered Institute of Procurement and Supply.
Outside of work I enjoy cooking, golf, MotoGP & F1, music, bad karaoke and card magic.
