New Manager Induction


If you are joining us in a people management role or have taken on people management responsibilities, there are a number of role-essential induction materials you need to complete. Information on the New Manager induction process can be found on the new manager induction intranet page.


Manager's Responsibilities


It is the responsibility of the Manager to provide an effective local induction on the specifics of role and workplace.  As the local induction occurs first, it is the most important part of the induction process for the new member of staff.

A manager's guide​ has been designed to outline line responsibilities and provide a list of generic requirements for local induction. Managers will be expected to add role/departmental/School-specific activity.
