Induction

Your local induction

Your line manager will arrange your local induction and let you know about any training you need specific to your role (such as Hazardous Substance Risk Assessment or Manual Lifting and Handling).

Mandatory training

All new starters at QMUL have to complete Anti-Bribery, Fire Safety and Display Screen Equipment training. You can get to them from the links below:

Anti-Bribery

Criminal Finances Act

Fire Safety

Display Screen Equipment

Some training is mandatory depending on your role or tasks; for example, you’ll need to attend a Recruitment & Interview Selection session if you’ll be on shortlisting and interview panels.  Your line manager will advise you.

Welcome Event 

New members of staff will need to book themselves onto the staff welcome event run by the Internal Engagement team. These events are only for staff. They take place in interesting spaces at one of QMUL’s 5 campuses and are usually half a day in length.

You will meet many colleagues from across the university, hear about current areas of interest and development from Queen Mary staff teams, and meet the Principal, with a chance to raise questions about your time at QMUL. Whether you are involved in academic research, teaching, or supporting students and staff, the afternoon is a great opportunity to find out more about the university's working culture and values, its role nationally in higher education, and its impact in the local community and across the world.

To book please go to the course booking system and search for W156.

For queries about the Welcome events please contact welcome@qmul.ac.uk
