As a recipient of public funds, and as a charitable body, the University has obligations to manage its resources prudently and to ensure sustainability. The University aims to improve levels of academic performance while ensuring financial sustainability.

On occasion, this may mean that the University has to reduce its headcount of staff through a redundancy process. In these circumstances, the University is legally obliged to consult with affected staff and recognised trade unions to seek to minimise the impact of redundancy. The document below has been agreed with the relevant staff trade unions.
