Who is the Birmingham Professional?

If you are not a member of academic staff then the Birmingham Professional includes YOU.

All staff that are not academic staff members are defined as being members of professional services and therefore 'Birmingham Professionals'. This includes support staff, academic-related staff, technical staff, administrative staff, catering staff, estates and ground staff, nursery staff and security officers at ALL levels of the University.

There are around 3000 staff working in Professional Services in a huge variety of specialist, generalist, managerial, technical, manual and administrative roles.

The Birmingham Professional embraces the Strategic Framework values of excellence, distinctiveness, impact, pride, and confidence. It defines our expectations for Professional Services staff and outlines a programme of activites that facilitates achieving those expectations. It builds on work already underway around capabilities, performance management, development and communications as well as including several new initiatives.
