Chris Buckley

Finance and Contracts Officer

I joined the School for Primary Care Research in June 2021, after spending the best part of 5 years working for Keele's finance department. Initially I worked for the University Institute for Science and Technology in Medicine, where I was able to grow my understanding of research grants and funding through undertaking procurement, purchasing and costing activities. 

From there I moved to the Medical school where I experienced the ins and outs of research funding. I worked to develop new systems and workflows to assist with financial management and reporting of the Medical School's portfolio of grants alongside working with forecasts and funding profiles. When I saw the opportunity to join the SPCR I felt it was an excellent chance to continue doing what I enjoyed while engaging in an exciting research partnership.

In my role I will support financial reporting to the NIHR, administer day to day activities in the Directorate and ensure award letters are up to date and correct
