Staff recognised with Long Service Awards

Colleagues who have worked for the University for 25 and 40 years have been recognised for their commitment and dedication.

Staff members were presented with certificates at the annual Long Service Awards, hosted by Human Resources with a celebratory speech by the Vice-Chancellor Graham Galbraith. Staff also received a gift, up to the value of £250 for completing 25 years’ service and £400 for completing 40 years’ service.

Peter Brook, Executive Director of Human Resources, said: “We value staff loyalty and it’s important to say thank you to colleagues who have helped shape our long-term success. It was fascinating to hear when colleagues started working here 40 years ago it was a Polytechnic, while 25 years ago the institution had not long been given University status and the World Wide Web became publically available for the first time. Whilst many things have changed, it was good to celebrate the contribution of colleagues who have dedicated so much of their working lives to our University.”
