Nominations are invited for the election of staff representatives to the Joint Staff Negotiating and Consultation Committee (JSNCC).
The JSNCC is the main forum for consultation between the University of Kent and its staff on matters of mutual interest and is one of the most important and influential committees in the University.
Staff membership of the Committee comprises representatives of each of the trade unions and four representatives of non-union staff: two from the professional services and research support staff in grades 1 to 6; and two from the academic, research and professional services staff in grades 7 and above. The current non-union staff members are as follows:
Professional services and research support staff (grades 1 to 6)
- Stephen Rowlstone – leaving his position with the University
- Becky Verlin – elected in December 2017
Academic, research and professional services staff (grades 7+)
- Jon King – elected in April 2019
- Denise Twomey – elected in December 2017
Stephen Rowlstone has notified us of his intention to leave the University, and we would like to thank him for his input and commitment to the JSNCC. As a result, nominations are now invited and welcomed for one position to represent staff in grades 1 to 6. Staff members working within Grades 1 to 6 are encouraged to apply.
Acting as a staff representative is interesting and rewarding. It provides the opportunity to discuss and comment on University plans and policies, to meet a wide range of new people and to gain valuable personal development. Training and support will be provided to the successful candidate.
The deadline for completed nominations is 17.00 on Monday 10 February 2020.
