Expanding and recruiting

The annual planning process that we go through every year is intended to match the projects the university wishes to implement to the resources available.  This year continued a trend for more projects to be requested, including many that are needed simply to comply with external regulatory changes or to replace systems that have reached their end of life.  There are also several large projects that come with extra internal funding.

The outcome was that we needed to increase our numbers substantially in order to meet these requirements.  This led to some complex negotiations in the high reaches of the university.  I'm thankful that I haven't had to be involved, but frustrated at the length of time it took to resolve the issues.  Still, the good news is that we now have permission to add 13 new posts to Applications Division.

The adverts are now on the University jobs site as well as .
