Welcome and congratulations on your appointment at the University. Induction is an essential process for all the staff within the University. The purpose of this workplace Induction is to make your transition into your new role as smooth as possible. The process will give you information about the University and your College/Professional Service as well as how you and your team fit into this structure.

Depending on the size of your Service, your Line Manager and/ or Induction Facilitator and/or Buddy will go through the workplace induction checklist with you over the next three months. Your team is also here to support your transition, so please know that you can call on any of your colleagues to assist you as and when needed.

When your induction is completed please complete the induction evaluation form about your induction experience, so that the process can be continually monitored and improved where necessary.

We wish you every success in your new role.
