Finance Division


Karen Sheldon, Finance Training Manager

As the manager of the team I am responsible for ensuring that the training we provide equips staff with the knowledge and skills to administer the University's finances appropriately. I also edit and co-ordinate the publication of the Financial Procedures Manual.

I have been with the University since UFS was introduced (yes I remember CAPSA). During this time I have seen many developments in the Finance Division as well as helping to implement the HR's CHRIS system. I have a strong interest in staff development in general and I co-ordinate those studying at a higher level qualifications within the Finance Division in accountancy, tax and procurement in both the Finance Division and across departments and insurance. In addition I also co-ordinate and support those across departments that are studying for ACCA or CIMA.

In my previous life I spent nine years with Customs & Excise where I was one of their internal Technical trainers, and dealt with fraud cases as well as auditing both small and large businesses.

Helen Bailey, E-Learning Developer

My main responsibility within the Finance Training team is to enhance the training programmes offered by the team using online learning. Our intention is to use technology to make training more readily available, accessible and engaging to staff across the University.

I have a background in eLearning, graphic design and the web and have worked across a broad spectrum of medical education, teacher training, management and staff training programs.
