The University HR team operates at the heart of the university and operates a HR Business Partner model of service delivery to its stakeholders. HR works closely with all key customers on the people agenda that supports the aims of the university but also the specific needs of academic Schools/support Services within it. The HR team strives to be recognised as providing operational and customer service excellence; a high quality and transformed HR department working adding value to organisational performance across the university.

It is an exciting time at the university as we progress the interconnected wilful institution building and TIRI (Teaching Intensive, Research Informed) agendas. These strategic imperatives can only be achieved through the university’s excellent employees and the HR team plays a key enabling role in this regard.

HR Mission Statement Our mission is simple. HR is committed to supporting the university’s TIRI agenda and aims to contribute by developing and implementing policies, processes and initiatives that are not only important to achieving the university strategic plan, but also optimise the ability to recruit, develop, retain and reward a body of employees commensurate with a successful university.

HR Strategy This HR Strategy sets out the strategic priorities of the HR team (therefore guiding principles for the team) for the period 2015 – 2020 as determined by the university executive board and is aligned to the university strategic plan and associated agendas. This can be accessed below
