Human Resources

Human Resources provides strategic and operational advice and guidance in all employment matters. The unit delivers a range of central services including recruitment, support and advice, salaries and pensions and data and systems. 

Core activities include the implementation of those sections of the University’s strategic plan which relate to HR issues, the development of HR policies, recruitment of academic and support staff, implementing and administering internal HR procedures such as promotions, grading reviews, salaries and pensions administration, the provision of management information both internally and externally and providing advice and guidance on employee relation matters and  employment legislation.

The HR team operates an HR Business Partner model, with each School or unit having a designated point of contact for HR advice and guidance. 

Mairi Stewart is the director of Human Resources.
