Functional Review of Professional Staff Structure
Stage 1 of the Functional Review of the professional staff organisational structure is complete with the revised management structure recently approved by the MGSE Executive. Stage 2 is now underway which involves reviewing the skills and capabilities required for each business unit.
Key features of the new organisational structure include:
- the establishment of a dedicated Strategic Communications team combining the digital team, events, media, alumni and partnerships; and
- bringing together all staff who provide administrative support to academics into one team in the expanded People & Culture & Executive Services team.
