Welcome to the Human Resources Office website. We are continuing to review and develop our website to ensure it provides valuable guidance, information and support to all staff at NUI Galway.

The Human Resources Office is committed to advancing NUI Galway as a leading global university, renowned for our distinctive areas of research, recognised as an institution of choice for our teaching and scholarship, celebrated for our outstanding engagement with wider society and enriched by a dynamic network of partnerships.

We support the University’s mission of fostering a vibrant communication of students and staff, where distinguished learning, impactful research, and creative thinking are shared with the world.

We do so through the provision of a range of services across Employee Resourcing, Employee Relations, Learning and Development and Equality related issues.

The ethos of the university is defined by its people. Enriched by the diversity of our staff we work together to deliver research, teaching, learning, and community engagement. We are united in our shared commitment to the highest professional standards, and by our pride in working at NUI Galway. We seek, therefore, to respect and actively respond to the developmental, professional and personal needs of all of our colleagues.

Our aim is to attain new levels of performance, continuing to work together to be an excellent university. To do this, we must empower our staff to fulfill their potential, foster their personal and professional well-being, and develop their skills and capabilities.
