The University of Gloucestershire is constantly improving and developing, now achieving student satisfaction levels in the upper quartile of performance for all universities, as well as growth in our student numbers. We are committed to continuing to improve our learning environments, evidenced by our new Business School, investment in IT capabilities and particularly digital learning environments, as well as the development of our site with the recent purchase of a substantial building in Gloucester city centre.
The HR Service has a central role to play at the University in facilitating and supporting managers in leading their teams and effectively managing organisational change. We have an opportunity for an experienced HR professional to join our HR Business Partner team to work with a selection of schools and departments to achieve their ambitions for growth and development, and to ensure a great student experience. You would also be involved in some interesting cross-University change projects.
