Deputy chief executive and chief operating officer

Alice Colban
4 Portwall Lane


I lead a team developing our strategy in key areas such as research, learning and teaching, further education and international, and our strategic planning and management reporting processes.

I also ensure the excellence and cost effectiveness of our professional support services; especially those concerned with governance, core funding and day-to-day operations, such as IT, HR and legal. 

I was instrumental in delivering the corporate changes to Jisc following the 2011 Wilson Review and have been chief operating officer since 2013.


I have a background in corporate governance having studied public administration from De Montfort University.
