Changes to Human Resources services

07 Mar 2013

New ways of working to launch on 2 April

member of staff

The Directorate of Human Resources is about to launch a new structure and new ways of delivering services to staff. 

The aim is to offer an improved HR service for all staff. The new structure goes live on Tuesday 2 April and features:

  • HR Services – handling all day-to-day and transactional HR services and enquiries
  • HR Partners – Heads of HR and their management teams working more closely and strategically with their Faculties/Schools/PSS Directorates/other organisational units
  • Centres of Expertise – Staff Training and Development Unit, Pensions and Equality and Diversity teams

The main change most staff will see is that day-to-day HR and payroll enquiries will no longer be handled by staff based in local HR Offices. 

Instead, these kinds of queries will be dealt with by a new team called HR Services, which will be based in refurbished offices in the Simon Building. 

HR and payroll staff will be moving from local offices into their new HR Services base during the week commencing 25 March, ready to go live on Tuesday 2 April.

In the meantime, HR business will continue as usual. More details will be available via StaffNet, eUpdate and Staff Update over the next few weeks.  Any questions about the changes should be directed to your current local HR contact.
