We are delighted to have achieved the HR Excellence in Research award in November 2019, through demonstrating our commitment to the principles of the UK Concordat to Support the Career Development of Researchers.
The award requires us to reflect on our current practice in relation to the support and career development of our research staff, engaging with them to understand their experiences of working and developing their career at Royal Holloway. In 2019 we ran the Careers in Research Online Survey (CROS), and from this we developed and submitted a gap analysis and action plan, which formed our application for the award. Our application can be viewed here:Application award
We are now working towards delivering the action plan. The award process requires us to formally review and report on our progress every two years in order to retain our accreditation, and our next report is due in November 2021.
