Vice Chancellor S Bruce Dowton is looking to save money (CMM November 4)– there’s more news on how
The highest-profile plan to address an anticipated increase in the budget deficit is closing the Faculty of Human Sciences and reallocating its departments, although, HR is said to be working to minimise the number of staff who lose jobs (CMM November 22).
But nothing is known for the future of some staff in the Events and Domestic Protocol team and in Properties and Facilities. CMM hears the former’s function will be reduced and some capex will be put on hold, effecting the latter.
