Shaka Obhiozele

Head of Administration and Finance, Department of Paediatrics, University of Oxford

I work closely with the Head of Department on all aspects of strategic and operational planning and policy. I also manage the professional teams who provide the services, resources, advice and information required for the Department's effective operation and growth.

With the support of the professional teams, I am responsible for the non-academic management and operation of the Department, including: budgeting, forecasting and financial planning, aiding the operation of a sound financial control framework, research grant administration, recruitment and selection and all aspects of HR, health and safety, information governance and communications.

I work with staff in the Medical Sciences Divisional Office, senior administrative staff in the central University and other heads of administration and finance.  

I joined the University in 2015, working initially in the Planning and Resource Allocation Section with responsibility for the governance of the University’s capital planning process. Prior to joining the University, I spent a number of years in the civil service where I provided direct support to ministers and other senior officials across a range of complex and diverse policy areas.
