Committees and Management
The Department has a range of working groups, committees and staff networks that we encourage you to get involved with. Committee/working group membership is a great way to meet other members of the Department and contribute to Department strategy and decision-making. Although membership can be an addition to individual workload, it is a valued pathway for career progression, playing a key role in our Awards for Excellence, PDR, and Recognition of Distinction processes. We aim to achieve a fair and accurate representation of our Department members by gender, staff type and students on all our committees. If you have ideas about how we can do this better, please do get in touch.
Additional committees are convened for specific tasks, such as reviewing applications for Awards for Excellence and Recognition of Distinction. In these cases, panel members are selected by the Head of Department and Departmental Administrator based on the following criteria:
- Expertise of panellists
- Equal gender balance
- Even distribution of panel/committee experience across senior staff
