Together with the staff, he works to ensure that governance of the College is well managed through the Governing Body (strategy), Council (trustees) and the Finance Committee. Support services are the cornerstone of College life and he oversees the provision of well-organised accommodation, porters, housekeeping and catering; information technology across all properties to underpin the work of the students, Fellows and staff community; that buildings and estates are properly maintained and, when funds permit, refurbished. The Development Office also has a major contribution to make to secure the future financial stability of the College.
The Bursar works part-time and is usually in the office Tuesday to Thursday.
