The University of Huddersfield values the importance of a great induction as we feel it sets the foundation to what you can expect from your new employer. We have developed an induction checklist, as well as many useful sessions and resources, to help people settle in to their new role as quickly as possible. It is impossible to produce one checklist that will be suitable for every job role within the University, so inductions should be adapted to suit the role, location and each individual's circumstances.

 

During your first few weeks you will meet lots of people and hear lots of new terminology. Please don’t worry about remembering everything right away. You can always ask questions if anything isn’t clear. All new staff are subject to a probationary period, during which your line manager will meet with you to review your progress. Your induction is a vital part of this probationary period.
