MCE Partnership agreement and service catalogue

These working documents have been developed to present both a high-level overview and a detailed breakdown of the full and broad portfolio of work for which MCE is responsible. This includes both strategic activities, performed by MCE on behalf of the institution at an overarching University level, and details of the vast range of services available to access by Schools, Departments and professional functions.

Our structure

MCE is currently moving through a phased transition into a new operating structure and model. Access to our range of services will normally be via a nominated marketing business partner or marketing officer.

MCE is structured in teams based around sets of professional capabilities but we work collaboratively, in matrix project groups, that bring together the appropriate mix of expertise from across the function as each piece of work requires.

The Acting Director of MCE is Fiona Blair, and the MCE teams are:
