The wellbeing of our University community is our priority. During the current situation with coronavirus Covid-19, please remain calm and follow the advice and precautions published on the University web pages and associated communications.

Guidelines have been created for managers to support them with various Human Resources processes during the Covid-19 pandemic.

These guides are intended to provide practical advice and support to ensure these processes run as smoothly as possible during this time.

Our HR team is here to support you on a confidential case-by-case basis and can provide specific advice and guidance.

Webinars, forums, information exchange and learning resources

The Leadership and Management Academy is hosting a range of webinars and events that you can book onto.
