Protecting jobs at UNSW: no option unexplored

Staff will learn what is found next week

Last week VC Ian Jacobs asked staff to “consider voluntarily sharing the burden of reducing expenditure, so that we can minimise the impact of the financial pressures we are facing, including job losses.”

He reminded them yesterday, “the more staff who are able to take up one of the voluntary options, the better our financial position will be.”

So, how’s it going? The university community will know next week. Professor Jacobs says he “will leave no option unexplored in seeking to protect as many jobs at UNSW as possible” and by end April, “will provide an update on our progress and what further steps we may need to take.”
