Sign in: Staff/Students
Staff and students are being invited to share their views on the recruitment of the new Vice-Chancellor, following last month’s announcement that Professor Sir Howard Newby is to retire next year.
The global executive search firm, Perrett Laver, has been appointed to manage the recruitment process.
David Allen, Principal Consultant, will visit the University on Monday 24 and Tuesday 25 March, to gather staff opinions about the skills, experience and characteristics that they believe are important attributes for the successful candidate.
Consultation meetings have been organised to ensure as many staff as possible have the opportunity to input their perspectives. Departments, Schools and Institutes are currently compiling names of colleagues who wish to attend from their area of the institution and staff should contact their immediate line manager for details of the arrangements.
Two open sessions have also been arranged. These will take place at:
3pm on Monday 24 March in the Gallery at the Foresight Centre
4pm on Tuesday 25 March in the Thornton Room at the Foresight Centre.
Staff are not required to register their attendance, although places are limited and will be available on a first come, first serve basis*.
Separate arrangements are being made for colleagues in our Facilities Management and Residential, Sport and Commercial Services teams who do not have access to technology, or whose working hours may prevent them from attending the meetings organised.
A confidential email address has been set up for staff who are unable to attend the consultation sessions or who prefer to email their views to the consultants anonymously. Staff are invited to send their views directly to [Liverpool@perrettlaver.com].
As part of the consultation process, Perrett Laver will also meet with representatives from Liverpool Guild of Students to ensure that student opinion is also gathered as part of the process.
(*The Gallery holds 160 people and the Thornton Room holds 60 people maximum.)
Like the current VC, I will be retiring soon.Unlike him, I won’t be replaced when I go. I can’t help wondering if some of the funds which are going towards hiring a global executive search firm might have been better spent on filling posts like mine which we are told the University can no longer afford!
