A reminder that the Voluntary Severance Scheme closes next week

Staff wishing to apply for voluntary severance are reminded that the scheme closes on Monday (June 29) at 9am and the online application process will shut down at this time so it will not be possible to make any applications.
The Voluntary Severance (VS) Scheme was launched on 27 May and since then staff have had a number of opportunities to find out more about the scheme.
Peter Brook, interim HR director said: “We would like to remind people that once the scheme closes at 9am next Monday, no submissions will be accepted after that date.
“We’ve had lots of questions from staff across the institution which we have answered and provided updated FAQs on our webpages. 

“It’s not too late to ask questions and you can do this today by emailing the HR email address.”

Staff who have questions can email

There’s also a wide range of information available on the VS webpages.
Two webinars have been held this week for people to learn about the outplacement offering.  This offering includes:

  • LinkedIn profile
  • job search
  • self-employment
  • transitioning to retirement
