Career Options and Equality Considerations and Implications on Your Targets

Part time appointments

For part-time appointments, consideration will be given to varying the performance expectations to account for the part-time nature of the employment. Any variation which is agreed will modify the quantity of the target outcomes, but not the quality.

Family friendly leave and other extended absence

If you are absent for a period of time on account of maternity, paternity, adoption, shared parental leave, long term sickness or other leave of absence approved by the University for caring responsibilities, the University will take this into account in considering whether you have met the requirements for promotion. The University will give consideration to applying a pro-rata reduction in the quantity of objectives to be achieved in the period under review, having given consideration to the length of absence. The quality of outcomes will not be varied. There will always be a minimum output expectation to provide evidence of competence and achievement (i.e. no target will be eliminated or reduced to zero). This decision will be made by the College Pro-Vice-Chancellor following consultation with the Head of Discipline and the HR Business Partner.
