Dr Linda Colley is based on the Brisbane campus and teaches in HRM/ Strategic Management. She brings extensive practical experience from her career in HRM and industrial relations in the Queensland public service.
Her research builds on this career, with her PhD examining Queensland public service employment from 1859 to 1999, and her UQ Postdoctoral fellowship examining workforce planning in the contemporary Queensland public service. She has published on topics such as merit, tenure, job security, redundancy, gender and age at work, public management reform, privatisation, and the effects of austerity measure on public employment.
Linda is active in two international networks, as co-convenor of a Permanent Special Interest Group on ‘Public Servants at Work’ within the International Research Society for Public Management (IRSPM), and convenor of a stream on ‘Women in later working life’ at the 2014 Gender Work and Organization (GWO) conference.
