Faculty IT Teams

From June 2018 local IT support at the University will move from six zonal teams, outlined below, to three Faculty IT Teams.  The transition to the new structure will take place over the summer. A team of IT support staff will be based locally, ready to respond to requests from staff and students via the IT Service Desk.

The new structure of Faculty IT Teams will be overseen by the Engagement Manager - Richard Abraham. The three Faculty IT Team Managers are:

  • Health and Life Sciences Faculties Support Team Manager - Patrick Townsend.
  • Engineering and Science Faculties Support Team Manager – Chris Tothill.
  • Arts and Social Sciences Faculty and Professional Services Support Team Manager – Geoff Rickard.

In addition, we are establishing a team of three staff to provide a Business Partner function. The Team Manager for that function is Bob Berrow.

For details of the changes to IT support please see the information on the IT Services New Operating Model (UoB only).
