Colleague quote

The change to my working hours has reduced my fuel consumption and travel time as well as given me improved wellbeing as I have more time to progress projects when not working on campus. 

Manager - CIOSS

Ways of Working Overview

To help achieve our vision of being one of the world’s leading universities, we want to attract and retain the best talent, and continue to build a world class workforce. We will enable our managers to build flexible teams whilst creating a positive working environment in which all our staff can succeed. We can achieve this to maximise efficiency, improve service delivery, develop relationships, and provide a satisfactory work-life blend for staff.

This overview provides an overall framework to enable University business to be carried out in a more efficient and effective way, providing staff with the flexibility to work in the best way for them and their teams, and provides a more personalised and inclusive approach to meet the needs of staff, and the services they deliver.

The University is committed to moving to a more virtual workforce where outputs are the measurement of success and not time worked. This will be a cultural shift from the University’s previous ways of working.
