Welcome lunch for new staff

The Welcome Lunch is an informal and informative buffet lunch in which you will have the opportunity to hear from the VC or a member of the Vice-Chancellor’s Executive Group, and meet with key individuals from Human Resources.  All new staff are eligible to attend.  At present this event takes place several times per year at the Streatham Campus and once annually at the Cornwall Campus.

*Please note that this event is separate from any other event hosted by the VC at his residence Redcot.
