Guide for Managers

As a Head of Service, Dean, Head of School, Department, Function or Section within the University, you will be responsible for the overall leadership and management of the Performance and Development Review (PDR), including all 'PDR Job Chat' for appropriate staff.

The following documentation guides you through the process, setting out key roles, responsibilities and milestones.

The Dean or Head of Service will guide the overall process and setting priorities and expectations for your area. You will also work closely with your School Administrator, Departmental PA or equivalent to coordinate the various activities.

Your HR HR Partner/Adviser will also be a key point of contact throughout this process for advice and guidance.
