The University is committed to seeking to avoid staff redundancies.
The procedure that will be followed to underpin the principles and processes for carrying collective and individual consultation regarding the avoidance of redundancy is outlined in the document below
|Redeployment Vacancies Webpage|
|Members of staff who are at risk of redundancy will have redeployment opportunities made available to them through the Internal Vacancies webpage. Redeployment vacancies are clearly marked as such and tagged appropriately so you can search for redeployment vacancies.
The University's new recruitment webpage launched in January 2016. Register an account to apply for vacancies.Redeployment for further information.
|CSP Scotland Self-Marketing Workshop|
CSP Scotland runs self-marketing workshops which redeployees are invited to attend. The workshops include information relating to CV and interview skills. The feedback received from people who have attended has been very positive. Full details of the workshop agenda are provided below:
