Managing tender processes allows the University to evolve, expand and contribute to social economic growth, while achieving compliance and value for money. My role involves working in close collaboration with internal and external partners to coordinate the various tender processes and ensure the University remains compliant. I work with staff from across all Faculties and Directorates. This is an aspect of my job that I thoroughly enjoy as I am connecting with the whole University and have a good knowledge base of what is going on. I help the University to identify the most appropriate people, skills, external resources and equipment that will help to provide the best and most adapted learning and working environment for students and staff. Having the visibility and connection with the whole University allows me to have a better understanding of the various University activities and gives me a sense of being part of a very lively and active environment.
