Director of HR Jaspal Kaur announces retirement

March 26th, 2024

The University of Nottingham’s Director of HR Jaspal Kaur will retire this spring after 29 years of dedicated service.

Jaspal has overseen huge changes in the university during her time and has contributed to the development and growth of HR. Most recently this includes the HR Transformation Programme and the significant efforts around the implementation of the HR element of UniCore.

Serving as Director under three Vice-Chancellors, Jaspal has been at the heart of many of the most important developments at Nottingham in the past three decades including the many HR issues involved in the establishment of campuses in Malaysia and China and, in recent years, the creation of a powerful People and Culture Strategy.

She also oversaw the implementation of the revamped Staff Engagement Survey – as well as actions which have emerged from it and from the initiatives above.

Vice-Chancellor Professor Shearer West said: “I’d like to thank Jaspal for all of her years of hard work and service to the university.

“Her calm and steady leadership in challenging times has been crucial in getting big projects across the line and we will miss the levels of commitment she has brought to the role.

“I am sure everyone will want to join me in wishing her the very best in retirement and thanking Jaspal for her service during her long career at Nottingham.”

In the period running up to her departure, Jaspal will work closely with Helen Dunn, Deputy HR Director, to ensure an effective handover before Helen takes over on an interim basis following Jaspal’s retirement.
