      Could you describe what your job is? 

      My role involves overseeing all landlord duties for buildings on science parks and innovation districts. This encompasses coordinating with tenants, addressing any building-related issues they face, and finding ways to optimise their workspace.  

      What do you love about your job? Why do you enjoy working in this industry? 

      Property is at the forefront of global conversations, with immense focus on pushing the science and technology industry forward, particularly Oxford’s life science cluster. I love being involved in that change. While tenants drive innovations, we create the foundation enabling their ideas to become reality. Supporting pioneers as they enhance lives is extremely rewarding. 

      Why did you pursue/fall into a ‘Science Aligned’ Career? 

      I was already in property, but science and technology represent the most exciting sector right now. Being at Bidwells and in Oxford, both central to UK innovation, allows me to play an integral role in this progress. 

      Could you tell us about what an exciting day in your role would look like? 

      One of the most exciting days in my roles are when I meet with tenants to discuss the work they are doing in the regular collaborative meetings we hold for each building. These collaborative forums enable sharing insights, from coordinating equipment use to discussing current projects. I really enjoy getting to know each building’s tenants and understanding their needs. 

      What three words would you use to describe what you do? 

      Enabling the future. 

      What are the most interesting projects you've been involved in? 

      Managing Oxford's pioneering Sherard Building is a definite project highlight for me. Overseeing such an advanced facility and looking after their innovative tenants keeps me on my toes! I find it really motivating to support them because optimising work environment s through strategic and efficient property management empowers pioneering science and technology companies.
