We would be delighted if you could join us for a welcome event on Wednesday 12th October for Birmingham Professionals who have recently joined the University. This event will cover both staff who have joined over the summer as well as staff who were to due attend the new starters event in June that unfortunately had to be postponed.
The Birmingham Professional affirms our commitment to Professional Services staff. It is for everyone who works in Professional Services, irrespective of grade, where they are located in the University, or role. This includes support staff, academic-related staff, senior managers, technical staff, administrative staff, catering, estates, cleaning and grounds staff, nursery staff and security officers across all levels of the University.
The Birmingham Professional aims to help you to understand the context in which you work, to grow and develop in your current role, to connect with your peers, and to make the most of the opportunities that are available to you. It does this by bringing together a range of activities, including networking events, workshops, communities of practice and development opportunities. You can find out more using our Resource Hub.
The informal session early next month will provide you with an insight into how we work in partnership with our academic colleagues to support the University’s mission and to find out what opportunities are available to you as a member of Professional Services. There will be an opportunity to hear from me and also from others who have benefited from The Birmingham Professional programme. It will also provide an opportunity to network and meet other new colleagues.
