About People and Culture


As part of our ongoing HR Transformation, we have renamed the Directorate People and Culture, reflecting the way in which this department – and the wider University – puts its people at the centre of everything we do. This is a milestone step that complements our revised structure and new service delivery model, both of which enable us to provide a consistent HR Service for managers that is quicker and easier to use.

Our new name, structure and service will also support us in delivering on the commitments set out in our People and Culture Strategy, People First, which you have all fed into and will continue to help to shape. There are three interconnected pillars to People First: Employee Experience, Culture and Talent. These recognise that providing an attractive experience for our people, and developing them to their full potential in a culture which they enjoy, will allow us to become an Employer of Choice and attract the best world-class talent.
