Paula Tunbridge

Director of Student Life and Wellbeing


I started working at the University of York in 2009 as Deputy Director of HR. Prior to this my career involved working in the private and public sectors in general and HR management roles in Marks and Spencer, the National Health Service and the Environment Agency. I am a Fellow of the Chartered Institute of Personnel and Development and have experience in large scale projects that contribute to organisational development and change.
In August 2018, I was seconded to Student and Academic Services as Director of Student Life and Wellbeing, with responsibility for the Colleges, the Student Hub, the Open Door and Disability team, Student Conduct and Security.
