My News

Some news from me …

I’ve been at JISC since 2006, and I am very proud to have worked with colleagues across the sector in supporting practice in repositories, open access, learning materials, IPR and open educational resources. I truly work with some amazing people, inside and outside of JISC.

However, as Nina Simone sang, everything must change, nothing stays the same. It’s time for me to make a change.

I am delighted to announce that I am going to be taking up a new post in December at the University of Warwick. It’s on my home turf: an opportunity came up at the nearest university to where I live, and how lucky am I that it happens to be Warwick?!  Working in IT within the Services Development team, I’ll be service owner for Academic Technology Support. We’ll be a team of seven specialists in e-learning and research technologies working across the university to support academics.  I’m really excited, I can’t wait to get my teeth into it.

If you like the sound of the team: there is a new vacancy for a senior academic technologist (closing date 25th October). If you’re based at Warwick and reading this I’d love to hear from you! I’m @ambrouk on twitter, or contact me through this blog. And if you’re in a similar role at another institution, please get in touch and share your wisdom! 😀

  1. wow – how exciting! and I completely understand about jobs on home turf – they are excellent. I will miss your common sense and wisdom in the JISC sphere though 🙂

  2. Congratulations. It’s a big loss to JISC and hence to the country – but a great move for you, I’m sure. I greatly appreciated what you did in the repository sphere and I know you made a real difference to a lot of people on those projects. I’m sure you’ll go on making a difference.

  3. That’s a big loss to the JISC; your name crops up regularly (in positive ways) and you’ve clearly shifted the thoughts of many inside and outside of the organisation.

    Have fun at Warwick!
