As part of its continuing research into the higher education labour market, the Universities and Colleges Employers Association (UCEA) commissioned IES to undertake a research project exploring patterns in the recruitment and retention of staff in higher education.

The research also examined the methods by which higher education employers monitor and measure workforce changes and the solutions found by higher education institutions in dealing with any shortages. Surveys of recruitment and retention have previously been conducted on a regular basis by UCEA - the last was in 2002.

The research was supported by the Higher Education Funding Council for England (HEFCE), Universities UK (UUK) and the Standing Conference of Principals (SCOP). The research covered HEIs throughout the UK.
