The HR Self Service System records and manages data for all employees and non-contracted status people –i.e. honorary/affiliate, casual workers and external examiners – c11,000 live records.

The HR Self Service Portal allows people access to their personal details and, if applicable, pay details. It is a web supported system and is accessible 24/7.  All users of the system have a responsibility to ensure personal data is correct and up to date to comply with Data Protection Legislation.

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.
