As a truly global university, rooted in Scotland’s capital city, we make a significant, sustainable and socially responsible contribution to the world. For more than four centuries, our staff and students have made history. They have invented new disciplines such as geology, the study of literature and epigenetics, explored space, revolutionised surgery, won 23 Nobel Prizes, published era-defining books, developed life-saving medical breakthroughs and laid the foundations for solving the mysteries of the universe. With over 14,500 employees, we believe that anything is possible.

The GRC aligns neatly with our ‘service excellence’ transformation programme that is focusing on a number of key functions (including HR). As we start to design a function and principles that aim to meet the future needs of the organisation, the GRC offers industry benchmarks that will help us reinvigorate and focus our strategies to attract the best international talent to achieve our strategic objectives. The rich source of data and additional benefits offer us an invaluable baseline comparator for our recruitment function and will help us deliver a forward thinking professional function that we hope will be sector leading.
