Kathryn Lacey


Operations Manager

As operations manager I work closely with the senior management team to ensure the smooth day to day running of the unit.  I oversee the administration and IT teams at OCMR enabling the effective operation of the unit and overseeing its growth.  I have specific responsibility for:

  • Management of service contracts and maintenance for all our specialist equipment
  • Management of visitors and inductions for new staff
  • Oversight of Magnet Safety Training and building access
  • Building and facilities management
  • Website updates and maintenance
  • Maintaining an overview of financial processes and budget monitoring
  • Day to day management of personnel issues, including recruitment, with support from the Cardiovascular Medicine HR team

I have worked at OCMR since December 2013, joining the University after an 18 year career in the public sector.  OCMR is a dynamic and busy place to work; I have so far have been  involved in the day to day management of three large capital projects within the unit.  In 2014/15 we added an extra floor to the building to increase our teaching and research space.  In early 2016 we upgraded our 1.5T magnet and in 2016/17 we installed a new MRI scanning suite in the basement of our building.  These have been challenging projects and it has been exciting to be involved in them.
