Universities Human Resources (UHR)

UHR

Universities Human Resources is the key organisation for HR professionals in higher education in the UK.

UHR provides top quality development, networking and communications to support Human Resources professionals in Higher Education in the UK. We have built a reputation for well-researched innovation and informed opinion, and we contribute to policy formulation and debate at the highest levels of the sector.

The association is divided into geographical areas, members of which meet several times a year to exchange news and disseminate best practice. Each area group nominates a member to serve on the Executive Committee, together with a number of directly elected representatives and officers.

The Executive Committee, including the Chair, Treasurer and Secretary, meets every four months to formulate policy, plan activities and give strategic direction to the association.  UHR is assisted by a part-time Executive Director.

A three day residential conference is held each year in the spring. Development days are held throughout the year on topics such as employment law.

UHR works with associated bodies such as Universities UK , UCCEA and GuildHE to offer co-ordinated responses to consultations by bodies such as the Funding Councils and government, and to share information and best practice.
