Ms Tina Barker
Department Administrator


I joined Brunel in September 2016 following two years spent working for Hillingdon Council in the Children, Young People and Adults Social Care Directorate. My work was focused in the areas of youth offending, children's safeguarding, quality assurance and service improvement.

Prior to my Council experience, I worked for seven years as PA to the Director and HR Office Manager at The University of West London. In 2014, our team won the Outstanding HR Team award at the Times Higher Education THELMA awards ceremony.

Prior to my university experience,  my career was focused in the pharmaceutical/biopharmaceutical/medical industries, where I worked for a biopharmaceutical research and manufacturing company, then a clinical research company carrying out worldwide clinical trials, and finally working directly as PA to consultant surgeons in a hospital setting. I have nearly 30 years' experience of working with medical and scientific terminology and am a qualified medical secretary. 

I am a member of the Institute of Administrative Management (MInstAM).


All non-student facing administration functions for the Department of Life Sciences, including

  • Purchasing
  • I am both a member of, and secretary to, the Life Sciences Department Management Board

PA to Professor Alex Blakemore, Head of the Department of Life Sciences.
