We have been liaising with managers across the University, together with our suppliers and unions, to explore the requirements of all teams, and how those can be delivered in line with Government guidelines and health and safety recommendations.
For the foreseeable future, social distancing measures mean we will need to operate with a much-reduced capacity on site, so we will need to work very differently.
However, we also know from our experiences over the past months that being more agile and flexible in our approach can allow us to be more innovative and effective – so we will be moving back to campus in a phased way that will allow us to retain the benefits of this change, while ensuring the safety and wellbeing of all colleagues.
Throughout this time, we will need to be operating within whatever restrictions are in place at the time, maintaining social distancing as required, and ensuring we are ready if stricter measures need to be introduced.
If you haven’t already, please speak to your manager about what the timeline for return looks like for you and your team.
