Finance Officer

History (Rutherford N3.S6)


Kirsty has been a member of the University since 1997, when she joined as an undergraduate to take a degree in Classical & Archaeological Studies. She went on to pursue her postgraduate studies at Kent, receiving an MA in Classical Image & Narrative in 2002. In 2010 she was awarded her PhD, entitled Virgo to Virago: Medea in the Silver Age, in which she examined the Roman portrayal of the mythological figure of Medea in three Latin authors, Ovid, Seneca and Valerius Flaccus. For several years, as Associate Lecturer, she taught the Beginners' Latin module for the School of European Culture & Languages, and has since been made an Honorary Research Fellow, and she is also an Editorial Consultant for the Online Companion to the Worlds of Roman Women. As well as continuing to pursue her research, she undertakes annual marking and moderating for two national school examination boards, OCR and WJEC.

Kirsty has over twenty years' administrative experience, having worked in the cash and operations offices at a DIY store before joining Canterbury City Council as a Records Assistant, where she worked alongside Cathedral Archives staff. In 2007 she began working as a Clerical Officer in the English Language Unit at the University, principally looking after the administration of the English Language degrees and the Pre-sessional courses. In 2010, when the Unit became the Centre for English & World Languages, Kirsty took on a finance role. Kirsty moved to the School of History in July 2014 to begin working in the newly created Finance Officer post. Her main duties involve carrying out the day-to-day financial administration for the School, including processing all expenses and payments, and monitoring the various research budgets.
