Pope

I stand for election to serve in the Pool for constituting panels convened under Statute XII Parts B, D and H.

I have over 30 years’ experience in Human Resources, having worked in the public and private sectors, and latterly as HR Director for Aston University and then the Royal Agricultural University. I joined Oxford University in 2018 and currently lead the HR Shared Service for the Bodleian Libraries and Ashmolean Museum.

I have been a member of the Chartered Institute of Personnel and Development for over 20 years and my MSc is in Human Resource Management (1996).

Having been involved in many such panels such as those convened under Statute XII, both advising the panel and presenting the case, and having also managed cases going before Employment Tribunal, I feel that my experience will make me a useful panel member.  I can bring a perspective grounded in the University and academia, but also from other sectors such as policing, Local Government, Further Education and a private/public joint venture.

Approaching my second anniversary at the Bodleian Libraries, I am now keen to have involvement in and contribute to the wider University.

General Information about this constituency

This constituency is comprised of 8 members of Congregation to whom Statute XII applies, not necessarily representing any division and not in any case being nominated in a divisional capacity, elected by members of Congregation.

Elections to this constituency restrict candidates to those members of Congregation to whom Statute XII applies (that is: professors, readers, associate professors or lecturers; any employee of the University who is a member of the Universities Superannuation Scheme or who would be a member if he or she had not been exempted under the provisions of Statute XIV; and the Vice-Chancellor to the extent and in the manner set out in Part G of Statute XII).

This means that all members of Congregation are eligible to nominate a candidate or to vote, but prospective candidates who want to stand for election must be a member of Congregation to whom Statute XII applies. 

The full term of office is three years (or less, when a by-election is held to fill the residue of the term of office for an elected member who is standing down early).

 

Further information about the Pool

Members of the Pool will be chosen by lot to serve on a number of Panels under Statute XII (i.e. Redundancy Panel (Section 14 (6)), Staff Employment Review Panel (Section 35) and University Appeal Panel (Section 52 (2))) and may be expected to also chair a Panel. Each member of the Pool will be required to attend appropriate training, including on equality and diversity, before serving on a Panel.

College staff are not covered by Statute XII as colleges have their own statutes. The exception is college staff at Kellogg, St Cross and Parks, which follow the University's statutes. Any staff holding joint appointments will, however, be covered by Statute XII in respect of their University contract of employment and duties.

The terms of reference and membership of this body are set out in Council Regulations 3 of 2017
