Uni Queensland proposes a comprehensive change for its property and facilities division. No punches are pulled in explaining why
“P&F’s current context is one in which there is a level of confusion in relation to organisational structures, roles and responsibilities (both internally and from a customer perspective) and the alignment of skills and knowledge to customer needs. In addition, P&F suffers, rightly or wrongly, from a perception of poor customer communication, and a lack of stakeholder consultation. Of concern is that some areas are perceived to have work practices, which are not well aligned with UQ values,” a change proposal states.
The university’s proposed replacement structure would have 30 positions, but 27 existing jobs would be disestablished. People with jobs set to go would get first crack at applying for new ones. Management hopes to have its replacement arrangement in-place by February.
