Welcome to the Human Resources section of the BEL Faculty website. The Human Resources team plays an important role in coordinating many of the people functions within the faculty, including recruitment and selection, staff engagement, training and development and staff retention. The HR team is based within the Faculty office but works closely with Human Resources Division in Central Administration. HR has a collaborative working relationship with the School’s HR personnel and provides high level advice to senior management. In addition to this, Faculty HR is also a contact point for all staff within the faculty office and our schools.
 
This HR website endeavours to provide timely and accurate information on policy and procedural matters, leave and recruitment, induction, immigration and travel as well as answers to many frequently asked questions for both school HR personnel and Faculty of BEL staff. If you have any queries or would like further information please contact the BEL HR team.
