Patrick Bellis

Deputy director – member operations and insight


My role is to ensure the very best advice, guidance and practical support is afforded to Jisc’s members at the right time, in the right way and that provide helpful solutions to members’ strategic priorities, UK-wide.


I have over 20 years’ experience in the education sector, including the University of Exeter and Northumbria University as well as a number of years in Jisc services. My early career in higher education began in planning and statistics, but quickly took a technological path into developing and managing business systems which led to my involvement with Jisc.
