Julie has worked as a Publicity and Communications Professional, joining the Physics Department as a trainee technician in the Departments Audio Visual Unit, training in photography and graphic design.

Moving to the Department of Engineering Julie took over the management of the website and publicity of the department. Being sponsored by Durham University Julie achieved ILM Level 5 Diploma in Management and also BSc in Computing for Business studying part time at University of Northumbria at Newcastle. 

In recent years departmental strategy and staff changes meant that Julie’s continuous development took her to a new path of Health and Safety Management.

She is a member of the Durham University technical manager’s network and also a key member of the Technicians Commitment Steering group.
