Improved system for approving staff resource

A new system to speed up the process for resourcing approvals (ATRs), including recruiting new staff, will be available on the Stonefish system from 1 April.

The ‘Staff Requests’ function on the jobs page automatically guides the user through the approval process, allowing the user to track their form and monitor progress and comments.

Introduction to the Stonefish Approvals System

You can watch the following video for further information.

The introduction of the system follows extensive testing with schools and services. The HR team will continue to review and reflect on feedback to ensure the system is working well.

Further information

To support you in the move to our new automated system we have developed a range of user guides, which can be found on our HR website.

We are also running drop-in sessions via Teams:
