The University of Cambridge is committed to effective induction for all new members of staff. In addition to the welcome and induction you will receive in your institution, you are warmly invited to take part in the University’s two-stage induction.

The first stage comprises the University’s Induction Online programme. This web resource is a quick and easy way for you to learn all about what it is like to work here as well as understand your role and responsibilities. It provides key information to help you:

  • understand how the University works

The second stage is a Welcome to New Staff presentation event, hosted by Personal and Professional Development (PPD). The Welcome event aims to provide a broad introduction to all University staff, providing information about the University to enable you to get the most out of your time here. It is also an opportunity for you to network with other new members of staff.

The half-day event comprises:

  • A welcome and introduction to the University from a senior member of the University
  • A presentation on benefits of being part of the University of Cambridge
  • A presentation by a senior academic providing an insight into the role of the Colleges and their relationship with the University
