Welcome Event

Organisational Development organises six Welcome Events each year. All staff, except ancillary (who have their own monthly corporate inductions) are invited to attend. You will receive an invitation to attend the Welcome Event shortly after your start your employment with the University.

In his welcome letter the Vice-Chancellor stresses the importance of induction in fulfilling the University’s commitment to developing its staff. All managers should encourage their new staff to attend this event.

The main aim of the Event is to provide participants with an overview of the University’s strategic objectives as well as an understanding of how the University functions. It is hosted by the Vice-Chancellor and in his absence by a pro vice-chancellor.

We also offer tours following the Welcome Event (weather permitting) which allows new staff to see the campus and hear important information from experienced University Staff.

Should you wish to book a place, please contact the OD Team, providing your name, personnel number (as shown on your smartcard) and the date you wish to attend (forthcomong dates are listed below).
