CAROL NEWMAN

Senior Business Manager - North Wyke

Operations

BIOGRAPHY

Carol is the senior manager responsible for all operations at the North Wyke campus, including finance, estates, farm and administration. As a business manager and analyst with more than 20 years' experience at a senior/executive level, Carol is able to ensure value for money at North Wyke by monitoring spend and advising senior scientists on project costing and justification of resources. Through her estates function, Carol works closely with BBSRC to ensure that the North Wyke campus is fit for purpose and legislatively compliant. In collaboration with senior scientists, she ensures that the operational strategy aligns with the science strategy for the site and, where necessary, prepares business cases for capital spend. At Rothamsted Research, Carol also has a wider remit; she currently chairs the Strategic Capital Development Committee (SCDC). She has also played a major role in preparing the Core Capability Grant application and has recently undertaken a review of our overhead charging strategy, allowing us a better understanding of our costs and how they might be recovered.
