In line with the UC Staff Recruitment Strategy and as part of an ongoing commitment to operational excellence and continuing process improvement, Human Resources has reviewed the current continuing and long-term fixed term staff recruitment system (currently UCPeople/PeopleSoft Recruitment Module).
We have now commenced on a project to replace the current UCPeople/PeopleSoft recruitment module for continuing and long term fixed term staff recruitment.

ability to build candidate talent pool,
opportunities to further automate and improve process for faster turnaround of staff recruitment,
easier and faster on boarding of new staff,
cloud based recruitment platform, less maintenance from UC required,

Michael Brown, Principal at intellectual property law firm AJ Park, will present a one hour session on intellectual property (IP). The session will introduce and discuss the different types of IP, explain how IP can be used to achieve commercial success, and cover important points to optimise IP protection. There will also be an opportunity to ask questions.
Michael joined AJ Park in 1998 and currently co-heads the engineering and ICT patents team. His role involves advising clients on patentability, design registration and product commercialisation. He prepares and prosecutes patent applications, both in New Zealand and abroad and also regularly conducts infringement and freedom-to-operate assessments, patent portfolio due diligence, and IP audits.
The UC Strategic Vision was publically launched last week at the UC Gala Dinner | Te Hākari. Professor Cheryl de la Rey, Vice-Chancellor | Tumu Whakarae presented the Strategy to local business and city leaders, and special friends of the University at the event. The presentation was well received by the audience – a positive step as the Strategy affirms UC’s commitment to local business and engaging with the community and city.
Implementation plans and prioritisation of activities are well under way and you will be kept up-to-date with progress from your manager and staff communications including Intercom.
