Higher Education Workforce Report 2019

UCEA’s workforce survey is a biennial analysis of data from UK HEIs which looks at recruitment and retention in the sector and a range of other workforce topics including contract trends, workforce demographics, apprenticeships and alternative staffing arrangements. The survey report draws on UK-wide data, using both analysis of the 2017-18 HESA Staff Collection (comprising comprehensive data from 162 HE institutions) and responses from UCEA’s own survey completed by 87 HEIs. The report is enriched with information gathered from 11 interviews with senior HR professionals.
