Human Resources


Human Resources is made up of the departments below – see department pages for information and contacts.

Wellbeing support for staff

You can access wellbeing support whenever you need it most, including access to highly qualified counsellors by phone, WhatsApp, live chat and SMS, or you can even request a call back 24/7, 365 days a year. As well as a confidential counselling helpline offering up to eight structured counselling sessions, you have access to a medical helpline, legal support and help with day-to-day issues, such as career coaching, consumer advice or relationship mediation.

Dignity and Respect

Bullying or harassment are never OK. Report + Support is the University’s online tool, for you to find support, report anonymously or ask to speak to an adviser.


If you have an impairment, check how to navigate the Sussex website and see our accessibility statement.
