Karen Gent

Finance Manager

Based at The Sherrington Building, I manage the DPAG finance team which currently consists of 4 staff and has responsibility for the effective and efficient day-to-day management of the Department’s finances 

Working closely with the Senior Research and Finance Manager, Wanda Groenewald, developing understanding and transparency of information provided to budget holders. 

Previously, I have worked in other roles within Oxford University, including Finance Manager at The George Institute and Management Accountant in Estates and Facilities. Managing a £17m budget over 48 FM Managed Buildings ranging from the ROQ site to the Sheldonian theatre. 

Prior to working at the University I have worked mainly within the Charitable sector including a large housing association and a Children's charity whose focus is on improving the lives of disadvantaged young people and young carers. 

I am in the final stages of becoming a Qualified ACCA Accountant (Association of Chartered and Certified Accountants) and already hold an Advanced Diploma in Accountancy and Business from ACCA along with the full AAT Qualification (Association of Accounting Technicians). I recently submitted my final Research and Analysis Project (RAP) to Oxford Brookes and should receive the results of my BSc(Hons) in Applied Accounting within the next few weeks!
