Julie Etherden

Officer Manager & PA to the CTO


Julie ensures the smooth running of the Cranfield office, and provides proactive, effective and timely support as PA to the Chief Technology Officer. She also regularly supports the HR Manager with various administrative tasks.

Having discovered a love of typing in her last few years at school, Julie’s career began with an apprenticeship. She spent several years in HR at Vauxhall Motors, then 13 years as Senior Secretary at a research company in Dunstable. Julie’s passions for aerospace, travel and flying was ignited by working as PA to the VP of Operations at B/E Aerospace (now Collins Aerospace) in Leighton Buzzard.

Julie has a love of sport and has been to some of the most exciting events held in the UK, including Wimbledon for tennis, Silverstone for MotoGP and the London 2012 Olympics. As well as being a running club member, she has completed a marathon and raised over £500 in sponsorship for Mind. Julie is also a huge fan of Neil Diamond, and frequently goes to gigs with her daughter. Her willingness to join in and help organise ensures that the ATI’s teambuilding activities are always great fun.
