Introduction to HR services at Derby

At Derby we recognise we are ultimately a people business

How we feel about working here has a direct and obvious impact on business performance. Visitors tell us our university has a different feel; a friendly and supportive place of work. This is hugely important to us and sets the tone for much of what the University believes in.

During these competitive times, our students and customers are more demanding and we need to be able to respond to ever changing and often uncertain events. We believe the best way to deal with change is to ensure that all our people understand what the University is trying to achieve and how each individual has potential to make a difference to overall performance. This approach lies at the heart of our Human Resources strategy.

Derby is a 'values led' organisation and our core values underpin our culture; a culture that is conducive to enabling people to give their very best. Equality, diversity and inclusion forms an important part of our core values and our wellbeing agenda. 

In Human Resources, we support people centric guidelines, procedures and approaches that allow the University to achieve its mission: great people, original thinking, inspiring individuals…changing lives. From recruitment, through to reward, our holistic approach to engagement, development and equal opportunities, the HR mission is clearly aligned to making the University of Derby a great place to work and study.
