Our Global Mobility Project

As a sector, we understand the importance of internationalisation and global mobility from student and staff recruitment, partnerships and producing high-quality globally collaborative research.

The pandemic changed how we work, with remote and hybrid working increasing significantly, in fact, 38% of working adults have worked from home at some point over the past 7 days! A rise in remote working has led to some employers offering fully remote working opportunities, expanding the applicant pool across the UK and worldwide. However, legislation and liabilities such as employment law, tax, pensions and insurance can create issues, putting both the University and staff at risk.

The Global Mobility Project

Our Global Mobility project will first identify staff partially or fully overseas, then we will develop a policy and procedure that supports our internationalisation strategies, whilst ensuring the University and staff remain compliant.

Please notify us of any current or planned overseas travel/work.  You can do this by completing the overseas travel form.
