Important notice to all members of staff not in the Education and Research job family

Further to the call for nominations for a member of staff who is not a member of the Education and Research Job Family to serve on the Council of the University from 1 August 2015 - 31 July 2018, Claire Marr (Accommodation Operations Assistant), the retiring member, has been re-elected unopposed.

Council is the governing body of the University and its primary responsibilities include:

  • approving the mission and strategic vision of the institution, long-term business plans, key performance indicators (KPIs) and annual budgets, and ensuring these meet the interests of stakeholders;
  • appointing the head of the institution as chief executive of the institution and putting in place suitable arrangements for monitoring his or her performance;
  • ensuring the establishment and monitoring of systems of control and accountability including financial and operations controls, risk assessment and clear procedures for handling internal grievances and for managing conflicts of interest;
  • monitoring institutional performance against plans and approved KPIs, which should be, where possible and appropriate, benchmarked against other institutions.
