Human Resources (HR) Strategy

Supporting the delivery of the University strategic plan 2016.

Human Resources – work themes

Human Resources aim to support the achievement of the University’s vision and mission by focusing activity on the following work themes:

  • Developing and implementing simple and consistent processes and systems – in line with the University’s Service Excellence Programme, making better use of technology and digital solutions, and developing and implementing common standardised processes.
  • Helping to create a flexible organisation – developing contractual arrangements to support flexible working patterns including overseas working, remote working, joint appointments with external partners, matrix reporting structures and secondments.
  • Supporting the evolution of the workforce – developing and delivering internationally and locally focused attraction and recruitment strategies, succession planning and talent management, technical and personal skills development (e.g. digital skills, leadership skills) and change management.
  • Making staff engagement and wellbeing a reality – supporting employee engagement, career development, reward and recognition and promoting equality, diversity and inclusion, and physical, mental, emotional and financial wellbeing.
