Currently, the University handles approximately 7,300 paper claims per year, which amounts to £1.3 million of reimbursements being made to staff members. The current process is manual; from the completion of the claim form, to the input into the payment system.

What is changing?

The University is moving to an online system utilising our current HR and Payroll system, iTrent, to make our processes more efficient and reduce paperwork. It will also allow us to collect information in one place, enabling us to identify issues and take remedial action. Claims will be able to be made directly on HR Organiser, and workflow utilised to move information from claim to approval to payment.

Organisation Structure

What is ‘organisation structure’?

The organisation structure is the backbone of our University. It gives details of the departments and jobs in which people work, and their relationship to each other.

A clearly mapped structure allows the University to highlight vacant positions and those to which we are recruiting; this helps us to understand how changing certain jobs can impact other people and their jobs. It also enables the University to estimate financial staffing costs both now and in the future.

A clear and well planned organisation structure helps us create a robust plan for a successful future.
