Evolving staff roles, responsbilities and contracts

Innovations frequently give rise to new ways of working and thus staff roles and responsibilities will need to adapt accordingly. This could also include consideration of new forms of contracts/commercial arrangements with staff e.g. moving from project-related staff to permanent funding posts or, vice-versa i.e. moving to a more contract-based (or out-sourced) approach – the FE sector has greater experience of this compared with the HE sector and has used this approach to bring about efficiencies.
