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 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 enable our managers to build flexible teams whilst creating a positive working environment in which all our staff can succeed. We 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.
