Abstract
Two principal approaches can be identified in the literature - the changing workforce map, documenting international employment patterns and trends against the background of contemporary market contexts; and developing understandings about individual academic and professional identities, which have become less homogeneous and increasingly fluid. The two approaches provide complementary perspectives on issues such as conditions of service and careers, as well as the impact on academic autonomy, rewards and incentives, and motivation and morale. Furthermore, whereas approaches to academic and professional identities in higher education have in the past tended to reflect a perceived binary division between those on academic and those on professional contracts, this is beginning to change. Increasingly there is recognition of professional and academic staff who work between academic and professional domains on projects that require joint input from staff with a range of expertise. Examples include those working in the fields of teaching and learning, the student experience and knowledge exchange. Specific roles, and who fills them, also depends on the traditions and conventions of national systems, types of institution, and local organisational structures.
