Welcome from the Director of Human Resources

As Ireland’s largest university and one of Dublin’s biggest employers, our great strength lies in the diversity of disciplines that we offer as a research intensive university, with many opportunities for our employees to grow and develop. The international profile of our community has also grown with over 25% of employees coming from overseas. This is truly an exciting place to work.

Our strategy - Growing through people, has been developed through widespread consultation to support the UCD mission of providing a supportive community in which every member of the university is enabled to achieve their full potential.

Growing through people envisages a supportive, developmental environment and culture based on four key strands:

  1. Transforming Service and Partnership
  2. Enhancing a Performance Culture
  3. Developing our Talent
  4. Becoming an Employer and University of Choice

It is our people that already set us apart from other universities and this strategy sets out an ambitious plan to invest, support, develop and nurture our talent so that we become an even better place in which we can work and grow.
