Our vision for technical talent

Capture

The University of Nottingham has a diverse technical base of the highest quality in terms of skills, knowledge and expertise. Our vision is to ensure that our technical staff are world-class and that the University of Nottingham is the employer of choice for technical talent. We are committed to attracting, developing and retaining the highest-quality technicians.

A new strategy has been developed to enable us to achieve this vision. Our strategy has four strands, aligned to key elements of the University’s Global Strategy 2020:

  1. Research excellence
  2. Teaching and student experience
  3. People
  4. Partnerships for growth

In order to deliver our strategy, we have a number of specific objectives which are organised by short, medium and longer term.
