Our Service

The HR Service at the University consists of a central function headed up by Christine Barr, HR Director and five devolved HR teams within the four Colleges and University Services. The devolved local teams provide HR Business Partner and HR operational support to line managers within their areas of responsibility, and report into the Directors of College Professional Services or, in the case of University Services, the Deputy Secretary of Court.

The central HR team, working closely with the devolved HR teams, have overall responsibility for the People Strategy 2016 and related management/HR policies. Working very closely with local HR teams the service focuses on three strategic themes - Attracting Talent, Supporting Development and Leading Transformation.
