Jill’s primary role is as PA to Professor Angela Shore in her function as UEMS Associate Dean for Research, Scientific Director of the NIHR Exeter Clinical Research Facility and Professor of Cardiovascular Science. She provides support through diary management, organisation and co-ordination of meetings and events, dealing with routine correspondence and making travel arrangements. She enjoys working closely with colleagues in the UEMS Executive Suite but also with the many research staff she works with every day on the RD&E site.
Having worked as a PA/administrator at various German universities for over 20 years, Jill returned to the UK in 2014 to care for her ailing mother. She joined the University of Exeter on a part-time basis the same year as maternity leave cover in CLES, following which she enjoyed short stints in several departments as a member of the Temporary Staff Bank before joining the Medical School as PA to Professor Angela Shore on a permanent basis in February 2016.
