Job Title:
Technical Manager- Operations
Andy Whittam



I began working at UoR in September 2010 in the School of Chemistry, Food & Pharmacy as the Building and Workshop Technical Compliance Manager. The establishment of Technical Services as a centralised function involved my role morphing to involve a larger team and an expanded gamut of services.

As the Infrastructure Division Manager, I am responsible for the provision of Workshop/ Mechanical & Technical support to 9 Schools supported within the Technical Services remit. I am also responsible for compliance including written schemes and insurance inspections, the organisation of contractor servicing of laboratory equipment, providing advice to equipment users and oversight of the asset management & temperature monitoring syastems.

I am responsible for the management and wellbeing of 7 members of staff, delivering objectives and training in line with post requirements, and as part of our commitment to personal development.
