Applications for new Staff Forum members open until Friday 14 October

Nominations open for staff Forum

Don’t forget that you have until Friday 14 October 2016 to apply to become a new member of the Staff Forum

Now running for over two years, the Staff Forum provides colleagues on Grades 1–5 with an opportunity discuss matters affecting the University as a workplace. The Forum enables colleagues to share their views and present new ideas – discussions and debates raised within the Forum directly influences decisions taken by the University. 

To apply to join the Forum, staff on Grades 1–5 can nominate themselves or a fellow colleague (as long as permission to do so has been obtained on their behalf). 

Once becoming a member you will serve as an employee representative, meeting once or twice a term to discuss ideas and items brought to the Forum. New members will receive relevant training and can also make use of a “buddy” system to help ease into the group. Representatives typically serve for two or three years, but can step down if necessary.  

The Staff Forum values diversity and welcomes expressions of interest from colleagues from all backgrounds, roles, contract types and locations. They are particularly keen to appoint representatives from all of our campuses, including Whiteknights, London Road and Greenlands.

If you are interested in joining please email Staff Forum for a nomination form. Nominations must be received by 5:00pm on Friday 14 October 2016. 

As part of your nomination, please confirm which School/Function/Department you work in and include a short statement (no more than one side of A4) stating why you (or the person you are nominating) would be a suitable representative. 

If more nominations are received than there are vacancies, elections will be arranged and appointments will be made before the start of the spring term.

If you have any queries please email the Staff Forum or call 0118 378 5796 (extension 5796).
