Future Workforce PlanStaff member with a laptop

Our Future Workforce Plan, a key foundation of our NeW Directions Strategic Plan, outlines an ambitious program of renewal and investment in how we recruit, induct, develop and support academic and professional staff to have world-class careers.

Academic staff

Our expectation is that academic staff will be research-intensive and deliver high-quality research-integrated learning. They will be networked with colleagues and industries across the globe and may be engaged in knowledge transfer with regional and global communities. In particular, we provide generous support for early career researchers to excel in their respective fields.

Professional staff

We aim to lead the sector in developing the 'next generation' of higher education professional staff who have opportunities to gain experience across a number of areas within UoN, and to build a portfolio of expertise to provide excellent leadership and service, and play an essential role in supporting the delivery of all elements of NeW Directions.Staff member in the library
