Directly prior to joining Sheffield Fran worked in the private sector, most recently at the TDX Group, where she held the role of International Head of Client Delivery. A diverse role which brought the opportunity to work with colleagues in the UK, Spain, Canada and Australia.

As Director of Operations Fran has a broad and varied remit, working closely with the Faculty Vice- President to develop and deliver faculty strategy, and in tandem partnering with the broader management and professional service teams, to ensure smooth and effective operational delivery for Engineering.
