As part of our colleague community, there are many ways you can make a wider difference to our University and its people. Ways in which you can contribute or volunteer include Give As You Earn initiatives for charitable causes and opportunities to volunteer at University-wide events such as graduation, student registration and open days.


Two people in conversation

We value our colleagues and believe it's important to recognise the fantastic contributions they make. This is why we have a wide range of recognition schemes including long service awards and other recognition events throughout the year. 

We also believe that saying thank you is important. That’s why our ‘thank you’ colleague recognition scheme is all about that. It gives colleagues across our University the opportunity to recognise peers and teams regularly. 

We never miss an opportunity to celebrate the fantastic work that happens across the University and our UNSTOPPABLE colleagues!
