Play your part in shaping your workplace

October 14th, 2022

Colleagues at levels 1-3 are being called on to play a part in the decision-making processes of the university and help shape the policies and procedures that impact our working environment.

New staff representative are sought for membership to non-union seats on the Consultative Committee for Support staff. The role begins immediately and runs to 30 September 2025.

The Consultative Committee for Support Staff provides a forum for communication, consultation and discussion between the university and support staff representatives regarding university policies, current issues and future developments.

This includes general issues regarding working conditions, training and welfare of support staff.  Issues will normally be raised through the appropriate university channels prior to it being raised at the Consultative Committee.

The Committee reports to People & HR Committee, a sub-committee of the University Executive Board.

Visit our workspace for more information about the role. You can also access the nomination form there.

To be eligible for nomination, you must not be a trade union representative or official, but may be a trade union member. Individuals nominated must be working within the constituencies they would serve.

A full list of constituencies and the areas they serve is available on the workspace. They must be proposed and seconded by members of staff from the same staff group who are also working in that constituency.

A commitment of around ten hours a year is expected for the role.

The deadline for nominations is 12noon on Friday 28 October 2022. Consider nominating yourself or your colleagues using the online nomination form.

Director of HR Jaspal Kaur said: “The Consultative Committee for Support Staff provides valuable insight, comment and discussion of the university’s key policies and processes.

The committee is an essential part of our change and continual improvement, and I urge staff at levels 1-3 to find out more and consider nominating themselves or their colleagues.”
