Settling in


 

The induction process

When you start work, your line manager or another person from your department will act as your 'induction facilitator'. They will help you get all the information, equipment and training you need to settle into your role as quickly and as smoothly as possible.

Staff induction checklist

Your induction facilitator will complete an induction checklist with you during your first two weeks.

Health and safety induction

A health and safety induction will be carried out by someone from your department. You will also complete a display screen assessment, if this is relevant to your role.
