In 2022 we were chosen as the department to pilot a new way of working with brand new offices, furniture and IT that enable a dynamic workspace with multiple working purposes. There are collaborative/breakout spaces, quiet working zones, individual pods for Teams calls and a social environment for networking. The space was designed in collaboration with staff and allows them to move freely between areas to suit their preference, comfort level and the task being worked on. As part of these new ways of working the Office Management team are currently piloting working in a hybrid manner (3 days on campus, 2 days working from home). The Office Management team has also recently expanded to a team of four: Service Business Manager, Deputy Service Business Manager (a new role), PA/Administrator and Support Officer.
