Can we have an RSS channel for our job vacancies?

QUESTION:

Can we have an RSS channel for our job vacancies? It would make it easier for us to know when there were positions so that we could pass them onto contacts.  And I am sure that a lot of recruitment and jobs sites would find it useful and so provide free advertising for us.

ANSWER:

Thank you for your interest in the RSS Channels.  Although the blogs are currently an internal communications tool aimed primarily at staff, we are always looking to review and develop our communication systems as part of rolling improvements and appreciate all suggestions and feedback we receive.

The current method to receive job vacancy notification is via the e-recruitment system, which allows internal staff and anyone else outside of the university to register and receive information directly about vacancies in any specific areas of interest, either via e-mail or via an RSS feed system – this information can be passed on to any outside contacts so that they can be infomed directly of our opportunities.

Although we feel this is still the most appropriate way at the moment, we will take forward your suggestion for consideration in the internal communications developments, thank you.

When will the results of the Employee Engagement Survey be out?

QUESTION:

Hi, would it be possible to know when we may hear anything from this survey and see the results as it is alluded to in the university plan?

 

ANSWER:

The data has now been received from best companies and we are working through this to understand the key themes. We will shortly be planning briefing sessions with university senior managers, recognised trade unions and all-staff briefing sessions to share this information more widely.

Further updates will be provided on the RSS feeds.
