DTEF Services are a small team who administer all ‘people related’ processes and activity across our directorate and provide support and guidance throughout.
Much of our workload is of a personal or sensitive nature and we endeavour to provide a professional, confidential and most importantly, helpful service to our colleagues across DTEF.
Our team work closely with colleagues in HR, to ensure that within DTEF, our roles are graded consistently and that recruitment and role changes are processed fairly and swiftly. We also provide a more comprehensive support to Cleaning Services on behalf of HR.
The team are also responsible overseeing and coordinating DTEF's training activity. In particular we monitor the statutory and mandatory training. We look to provide training that supports specific role requirements that are not available via the University’s central Professional Organisation & Development team. We source and book bespoke training and manage the DTEF central training budget and related activities. We also coordinate and champion apprenticeships.
For those teams for whom the recording of time and attendance is required, our team supports and updates Kronos. We input the rotas and shift patterns for approximately 400 members of DTEF staff that use this system.
In addition, our team oversees and coordinate other HR led initiatives such as Making the Difference and Rewarding Excellence. We also work with the Directors and Heads of Sections to embed relevant Succession Planning and Skills Development.
