CRAIG HENDERSON – SUPPORTING STATEMENT
I have been a member of university staff for over 19 years, working in both the
Finance Department and the Procurement Office. I am currently the Assistant
Director of Procurement for eProcurement and Efficiency.
Throughout my time at the University I have worked closely with both
academic and support colleagues at all levels. In addition to my experience
with the University’s financial and budgetary processes, I also have a good
knowledge of the structure and governance of the university. I have had key
roles in the successful implementation of a number of corporate IT systems,
and continue to lead in developing efficient processes and procedures.
I have previously been an active member of the University and College Union
(UCU), representing support staff on both local and national committees.
I am independently minded, enquiring, questioning and willing to challenge. I
have a strong sense of fairness and integrity, and as a member of court, I
would work to ensure that the University continues to maintain its high
standards of probity and fairness. I believe that decision making should be
open and transparent, and feel that there is no greater responsibility for a
member of court than upholding the principles of openness, honesty and
I take seriously the responsibilities of the Non-Teaching Staff Assessor to
Court, and would work hard to ensure that I conducted the duties to the very
best of my ability.
