New Colleagues

When you join Salford we want you to feel supported. To start your Salford journey we have developed the Salford Induction. This complements the induction you receive from your school or professional services area and is outlined in the Code of Practice for Induction of New Staff.        

Below outlines all mandatory induction activities, who they are for, and provides booking/access information.        

University Welcome Event 

This event is recommended for all employees
Face to face session.
This session is your formal welcome to the University of Salford and provides you with the opportunity to meet a member of the Senior Leadership team. The content will explore your role in contributing to our strategic goals and values and how you can help enhance the student experience, no matter which type of role you’re in. The session will also cover what you can expect from Salford as your new employer and the learning and development available to you during your time with us.

Please note: Participation in the induction programme counts as part of your probationary requirements, therefore you should attend/complete the required elements of the induction programme within your probationary period – this is detailed on your Contract of Employment and offer letter.  It is your responsibility to register your attendance at each session (even if you arrive late) so that it can be recorded. Please see details of the probationary requirements on the HR web site.
