Welcome to Human Resources
The departmental mission of Human Resources is to support the University in the accomplishment of its strategic business objectives by providing a high quality, continuously improving and comprehensive service to clients.
In light of the current circumstances in relation to Covid -19 the Human Resources Department is working remotely at this time. As such, any queries or requests for information should be sent electronically as Bryn Afon will not be open in the normal manner. To assist you in directing your queries to the most appropriate team member please see the page titled ‘Staff Contacts and Office Location’.
Thank you for your understanding and co-operation during these exceptional times.
The pandemic has meant that we have all been working in a very different way for the last 17 months with a focus on keeping colleagues, students and wider community as safe as possible.
Now that Wales is at Alert Level 0, the University is able to start bringing more staff and students back onto campus. Therefore, we will be incrementally introducing a ‘dynamic working’ approach, prioritising in-person on-campus teaching and support for students.
- While many colleagues will be wishing to return to campus, at this time Welsh Government is continuing to encourage working from home where possible.
- As a result, the Campus Services team has been prioritising re-opening areas linked to teaching and learning and face-to-face student support.
- Staff can work on campus from Monday 30th August if they have a single person office but only if they are involved in teaching and learning, face-to- face student support, or are researchers already working on campus i.e., in spaces approved for use by Estates and the Health & Safety team.
- Staff who work in multi-occupancy offices will be advised by their line manager about arrangements within their College, Schools, Departments and teams. These colleagues will only be able to work in the office one person in at a time until at least October.
- In-person on-campus meetings cannot take place before November, at the earliest, due to the prioritisation of teaching spaces. However, with approval from heads of academic or Professional Services departments, there may be specific exceptions for creative or sensitive meetings. A decision about social distancing and face masks for such meetings will be communicated by the Health & Safety team soon.
- From November, formal University meetings will be face-to-face – e.g., Executive team, Committees, strategy groups, Council, etc. All other meetings should continue to be virtual, taking a 'Teams-first' approach.
The College Deans, Heads of School, and Directors of Professional Services have been considering our plans to move towards a more dynamic way of working, taking into account what we have learned about the pros and cons of working remotely as well as delivering lectures online. They are now working with their management teams to consider how dynamic working will be introduced effectively across the University and will share their plans with teams locally in the coming days.Guidance and information has been produced to support managers and staff through the implementation of dynamic working and is available on https://my.bangor.ac.uk/humanresources/dynamicwork.php.en
