Focus on People is here to support you

We have developed this web portal as part of the wider Focus on People (FoP) programme, which aims to support and develop our people in professional services roles across the University. The aim of the portal is to make it easier for you to identify and access the resources available to support your professional development.

We know that our professional services staff play a critical role in effectively supporting the University’s core and academic purposes, something that has clearly been borne out during the pandemic. That is why we are committed to supporting our professional services staff in their development and recognise that this is paramount in enabling our staff to enhance their professional lives, achieve their full potential, and have fulfilling careers - both during their time with us here at the University and beyond.

I hope you find the web portal of use, and if you have any comments or questions, please email the team via

Julian Duxfield, Human Resources Director

Professional Services vision:
