What is this data entry capturing?
Records what the individual was doing before entering the most recent instance of employment with the University of Oxford into a Chancellors Masters and Scholars (CMS) contract. This information is used by the HR Analytics Team as part of the annual HESA staff return.
This item is returned to HESA and captures what the individual was doing and where (UK or overseas). It is also used for internal management information such as in recent Brexit impact analysis.
This is used by the HR Analytics Team to identify when an individual has worked at another UK Higher Education Provider (HEP) in order to retrieve their existing HESA identification number from the HEP.
Company Category relates to the HEI that an individual was working at immediately prior to working at the University of Oxford. It is not to be confused with Name of institution under the Previous HEI Employment UDF which relates to any HEI that an individual may ever have worked at, at any point in the past.
