Information and support for staff during the coronavirus outbreak
The priority of the Human Resources and Organisational Development Directorate is to support colleagues across the University at this difficult time. We will continue to monitor UK and Scottish Government advice and to work in close contact with colleagues across the HE sector to respond to questions, concerns and suggestions raised by staff. We are also continuing to work closely with the campus trade unions.
Contact details for each School and Directorate can be found on the HR web pages. If you are unsure which member of the team you should contact, or have a general enquiry, please email firstname.lastname@example.org

The central Health and Safety team is liaising closely with the University’s COVID Groups, managers, and the network of safety representatives across the University to manage the issues raised by the current situation. Information relevant to all staff is published on the coronavirus web pages but you should contact your local representative with any urgent health and safety matters.
