Once you have recruited the right person for your role, it's very important to introduce the new recruit to the University in the best possible way.

The induction process is a vital part of this. As well as giving people practical advice on areas such as use of University systems and useful contacts, it enables us to let them know that they've made the right decision in joining us. It also provides a useful point to introduce them to the training and development opportunities that are available to them.

Because it is important to ensure that no employee is placed at a disadvantage on account of sex, gender reassignment, pregnancy, race, disability, age, religion or belief, sexual orientation or being married or a civil partner, as the employer, you should be willing to vary the way in which induction is carried out to accommodate the specific needs of a particular employee.

For more detailed information, please see the University's new Staff Induction web site which includes information on the following:
