Our People

 

Enquiries should be directed to the HRD service team in the first instance using the HRD Enquiries email address. This team will assist you by addressing your matter directly or by pointing you to the most appropriate specialist within one of the HRD teams.

We aim to respond to all queries within 24 hours. If your query is more complex and will take a little longer to resolve, we’ll let you know that this is the case and advise you of when to expect a response.

We also have a dedicated Digital Skills Helpdesk (staffed 8am – 5pm, Monday to Friday) specifically for your digital and technical learning needs. Call the Helpdesk directly if you have a query about using Blackboard, interactive whiteboards, AV equipment, any software packages within the University or managing your online digital identity. Alternatively come to a drop-in session held 3 times a week for face to face technical support (no appointment necessary).
