Strategic advice - HR Partners

The role of the HR Partner is similar to that of a local HR Manager. Their primary objective is to support organisational effectiveness by working strategically with management teams and individual staff managers, supporting them in dealing with organisational and individual challenges, and in developing proactive and planned staffing, employee relations and organisational strategies.

Learn more about the HR Partners role in UCD and meet the team.


Development advice - People & Organisation Development team

We provide a wide range of training and development courses which reflect the UCD competency frameworks, enabling employees to engage with programmes which will support development goals identified through the Performance for Growth process. Our team can also work with managers to design bespoke training and development solutions to enhance the overall effectiveness of established teams.
