Survey of EU staff at higher education providers

IES, working with the Careers Research and Advisory Centre (CRAC) and Universities and Colleges Employers Association (UCEA), is undertaking research for the Department for Education into EU staff at UK higher education institutions to understand in greater depth individuals' routes into working in the UK, their skills, current roles and longer-term career plans.

The project will also develop the department's understanding of how this relates to providers' recruitment and retention plans in the short- to long-term, alongside wider workforce planning.

The work involves analysis of HESA data, an online survey of HR directors, and an online survey of EU staff.
