Restructures roll on at Uni Newcastle

Now its IT and the business school

Back in 2016 the university called in the consultants to review administration (CMM November 21).  Then there was a marketing comms review (CMM July 20 2017) and a redesign of undergraduate humanities (September 11 2017).

The focus last year appears to have been on enterprise negotiations but the pace of change has picked up.

In August, a comprehensive restructure of academic admin was announced (CMM August 26). Changes involving job cuts are now being considered in the university’s business school, with a comprehensive restructure of IT services. This is said to involve no reduction in net head count but there could be a “spill and fill” of dozens of existing roles
