Key HR appointment
The University has appointed Zoe Lewandowski as Director of Human Resources.
Mrs Lewandowski will take up the role on 17 November. She succeeds Sheila Gupta, who recently took up the role of Director of HR at the University of Cambridge.
Mrs Lewandowski is currently Head of HR in the College of Medicine & Veterinary Medicine, a position she has held since November 2002.
Prior to this she worked in senior HR roles in the professional and financial services sectors.
I am delighted to have been appointed as the University’s new Director of HR. I’m looking forward to using my extensive experience of working at the University to lead a successful, professional and flexible HR function that recognises and supports the diverse needs of the business.
As Director of HR, Mrs Lewandowski will be responsible for delivering and shaping the University’s people strategies and policies and providing leadership to the HR function.
She will work closely with College and Support Group HR teams to deliver the high-performance culture necessary for the University to achieve its ambitions.
