Staffing requests will be considered by the Planning Resource Group on a monthly basis, urgent requests can be approved via email by the Group if escalated by the Vice Principal (Academic) or Chief Operating Officer.

These procedures are not applicable to posts funded by research or other external funding. These types of posts (with a Level 3 code starting with 8) will continue to be authorised through the Research Finance and HR.
