Moving on: Breda Walls, Chief Student Management Officer

Breda Walls, Chief Student Management Officer, will be leaving the University on Friday 13 July to take up a new role as Director of Student Services at Trinity College Dublin.

As Chief Student Management Officer for Nottingham for the past 3 years, Breda has been responsible for all aspects of student services from registration to graduation, including fees & funding, timetabling & examinations, and partnerships, placements & mobility.

Her new role brings her closer to her family and home in Dublin and encompasses leadership responsibilities for the full range of Trinity’s student services including student recruitment, academic registry, sports, healthcare, day nursery, student counselling and disability services.

Breda joined the University of Nottingham in 2015 after an early teaching career and 27 years in the airline industry in a career which has spanned the UK, Ireland, Canada and the USA.

Commenting on her move, Breda said: “I am delighted to have secured a role at the prestigious Trinity College Dublin and to have the opportunity to be closer to friends and family at home.

“The decision was not easy and it will be a wrench to leave the community at Nottingham which has become very much a second family. I will be serving my full notice period to ensure a smooth handover and continued stability and delivery of the final phases of Project Transform.”

Vice-Chancellor Professor Shearer West said: “I would like to thank Breda for the immense contribution she has made to the University, in particular to our services for our students, and wish her every success in her new role with Trinity College Dublin”.

It is anticipated that Breda’s deputies, Clare Gough and Chris Hulse, will take on aspects of Breda’s role on her departure until a decision is made on the way forward with the role of Chief Student Management Officer.
