What we do

The Human Resources Department (HR) is split into three distinct areas of expertise; Operations, Professional Development and Employee Relations. Its primary function is to provide a personnel, payroll and pensions service to staff. This is supplemented by the work of the Employee Relations and Organisational Development teams who provide specialist advice and support, and are also working on the longer-term objectives of the HR Strategy.
