Staff Retention cases
There are rare occasions when the University wishes to consider attempting to retain a member of staff who has an offer of employment from elsewhere. The University Executive Board considers it important, in an increasingly competitive environment, to have a policy setting out how it deals with retention.
The University will only seek to retain a member of staff in exceptional circumstances.
A retention case can be brought for any member of staff, regardless of grade or category.
A case will usually only be considered if the member of staff has a job offer from another organisation, although the Vice-Chancellor may, exceptionally, waive this condition.
