Kent Business School
I was the project manager for a large scale website refresh for the Kent Business School which had a strong focus on content architecture and long term maintenance. We re-architected the website and 15 subsets from the ground up to improve the user experience by improving the website navigation, simplifying webpage design and culling irrelevant content that was not adding any business value.
The website was modernised to take advantage of some new functionality that was made available to the University whilst staying within the corporate brand and fulfilling all the stakeholder needs which included the Business School department, the University as a whole and of course the users looking for information and courses that the School provides.

Internal timetabling tool
Whilst working for the University of Kent, we used an internal time tracking tool to manage part time hours and the time spent on each project with these hours. Timetabling stuff in was completed manually and was not integrated into the time tracking software. I managed a project that provided a flexible timetable where staff could input their own availability and admins could approve/not approve hours based on monthly project commitments. In addition it offered an additional layer of flexibility for ensuring hours submitted matched hours approved.
This piece of work saved the University approximately 120 hours a year of staff time resulting in a huge improvement in staff effeciency.
