Mrs Helen Dingle

Helen works tirelessly to ensure the University’s ambitions and values are prioritised in her role as Director of Finance.

An ambassador for professional women who are under-represented in the world of finance, Helen is leading by example as the University’s first female Director of Finance. Her work is vital to all aspects of University life, as she implements dynamic strategies while protecting the University’s financial interests.

Helen’s professional life began as an office junior in a small refractory company in Rotherham, a position which ignited her interest in finance. After studying for accountancy qualifications in her own time and gaining further experience, she joined the University as a financial accountant, where she also studied for an MBA. Helen’s courage and determination allowed her to progress through the department to the position she holds today.

Helen’s colleagues said: “In her day-to-day work Helen demonstrates unfailing professionalism, dedication and commitment in all aspects of her role. What sets her apart is her deep commitment to all her staff irrespective of position or grade, her sense of fairness and being true to herself and her beliefs. She does the right thing – however difficult that maybe and that is something to be acknowledged and admired. She really does lead by example and we as a department and University are better for it.”
