Staff Forum

Welcome to the Staff Forum - now representing staff on all grades

TStaff Forum Group Photohe Staff Forum was created in early 2014 to ensure opportunities for staff on grades 1-5 to hear about and discuss matters that affect their working experience. Due to the ongoing success of the Staff Forum and the feedback we have received from members across the University, UEB have agreed to expand the Staff Forum to be inclusive of all grades.

The Staff Forum:

  • Meets formally with senior management on a termly basis
  • Representatives are encouraged to bring ideas, questions and concerns to the meetings, updating on matters which are affecting staff in their working lives at the University.
  • We can influence and challenge management on staff related matters.
  • Take an active role in discussing issues and seeking practical solutions
  • comment on University proposals and are the University's representatives for providing information and consultation on matters that may affect staff on Grades 1 -5 and now to provide information to staff G6 + as well.
