Mark McDermott

Head of Strategic Planning and Projects

I Joined the Social Sciences Division in March 2020 after 12 years in the Nuffield department of Medicine, where I gained experience in a number of their sub-units, including the Centre for Tropical Medicine and Global Health, the Wellcome Centre for Human Genetics and Ludwig Cancer Research. As Head of Strategic Planning and Projects, I am responsible for divisional planning; specific strategy areas including estates and IT; divisional governance in liaison with the Divisional Registrar; and leadership of agreed strategic projects and business change activities. I work collaboratively with the academic Head of Division, Divisional Registrar, Departmental Heads of Administration and professional services colleagues across a range of functions to develop and deliver the divisional office’s annul and strategic work plans
