James Cook U restructures HR, again

They love a restructure at James Cook U, which regularly rolls out changes to improve this or address that. There were academic organisation changes in 2016, with another round raised in April, CMM April 19).  And now management proposes changes to Human Resources, which was last “reviewed and changed substantially” in 2015.

According to plan proposer, HR director Geoff Rogers “several drivers and issues have emerged that point once again to the need for change to build on the foundation established several years ago.”

There does not appear much pain in the proposal. Senior jobs to go, notably the deputy director are vacant and the plan commits to no reduction in staff HEW levels.

Overall Mr Rogers writes the proposal, “will enable a more seamless and consistent service for HR’s customers.” Until the next plan.
