My background is in Humanities. I taught and researched in the area of Early English Literature and Language for several years (2009-2015) before moving to a career in academic development in HE. Alongside teaching UG/PG in humanities subjects, I have held faculty support roles since 2009. In this capacity, I created and obtained funding for cross-sector partnership programmes focused on raising awareness for languages, particularly in the area of employability. From 2011-2016, I developed and supported two national networks for promoting language-based professions such as interpreting and translation. This endeavour implied liasing with HEIs nation-wide and representatives from EU insitutions.
