The AHRC as an employer

The Council has ultimate responsibility for the appointment of staff and their recruitment, retention and motivation. These responsibilities shall for the most part be exercised by the Chief Executive who shall ensure that:

  • The Arts and Humanities Research Council (AHRC) has effective staff management policies which are consistent with section VI of the Management Statement.
  • AHRC's human resources policies and procedures are consistent with employment legislation.
  • Principles of equal opportunities and the AHRC's Equality and Diversity Policy are reflected in the recruitment and selection of employees.
