University Employees

University employees help to prepare students for their personal and professional futures. In recent years, staff members working in the university sector have had to contend with resource constraints, the shift to online and hybrid models of learning and growing administrative workloads. Academic staff are required to be subject experts, to have the necessary pedagogical skills to support student learning and to develop high level research skills while professional staff are increasingly required to have high level managerial or specialist skills. Our research investigates the complexity of university employees working lives and their occupational health, safety and wellbeing.
