Monday, 17th November 2014, 9:58 am

Margaret Monckton has accepted the new role of director of finance and infrastructure, and deputy chief executive, of Staffordshire University.

She joined Nottinghamshire Police in September 2010 and has overseen the force’s corporate services including business and finance, human resources, estates and facilities, IT and procurement.

She has also worked nationally, as the Association of Chief Police Officers (ACPO) lead for learning and development, and regionally, leading on procurement and IT.

Mrs Monckton said: “The last few years have been challenging for the force and policing nationally, with increasing financial pressures and the need to make dramatic changes in the way we work.”

“We have embarked on a journey to continually improve and achieve better value for money, and I’m proud to have been part of that. I’ve worked with some brilliant people over the last four years and really feel I’ve made a difference.”

“My decision to leave is based on a desire for a new challenge, and a real interest and passion in the education sector. I’m looking forward to joining the leadership team at Staffordshire University and using my commercial background to help the organisation navigate through changing times in the sector.”

Nottinghamshire’s Chief Constable Chris Eyre added: “Margaret has played a crucial part in the force’s ongoing transformation, keeping value for money and the needs of the public at the heart of what we do.”

“She has helped to lead the force through challenging times, making difficult decisions along the way, and I am sure her experience will be a huge asset to Staffordshire University. We wish her well for the future.”

Mrs Monckton will leave the force on 19th December.
