We have been offically recognised for our work in supporting our research staff in their career development by being awarded the HR Excellence in Research Award from the European Commission.

The Award demonstrates the University's commitment to improving the working conditions and career development for research staff, which will in turn improve the quantity, quality and impact of research for the benefit of UK society and the economy.

Retaining the Award demonstrates the University’s commitment to consultation and engagement with the research staff population and a readiness to examine the factors which affect researchers’ career development.

10 more UK universities have been recognised by the Award, which increases the UK total to 89.
