The senior management team is known as the Executive. Membership comprises the Vice-Chancellor, Registrar, the three Deans, Financial Controller, Director of Student Services, Director of Campus Development, IT Manager, Marketing Manager and HR Manager.
The purpose of the Executive is:
to provide a regular means for senior managers to share information;
to comment on ongoing issues and to contribute to decisions; and
to provide support and advice for each other.
It is a management forum that is not part of the formal committee structure. There are three additional senior managers - the Directors of the Research Institutes - who are not required to attend on a regular basis.
The Executive meets fortnightly and minutes are freely distributed. The Executive is committed to a policy of openness, the only exceptions being in cases of personal sensitivity and also where commercial confidentiality is necessary. This principle of openness is encouraged throughout the organisation.
