The HR Team are launching a secondment scheme which aims to match volunteers, whose workload has reduced, with opportunities, in areas of the University which need additional resource.
The current circumstances have affected colleagues and various parts of the University in different ways. Some have experienced an increase in workload, whilst others have experienced a decrease.
This presents the University with both a challenge and an opportunity as we seek to support one another to ensure work which can be carried out during this period is able to be delivered.
We are looking to do this by providing an opportunity for staff to volunteer to support other areas of the University using their spare capacity through a new secondment scheme. This should provide volunteers with a chance to use their existing skills and experience in a new setting.
Staff in all job families and at all levels whose workload has reduced are being encouraged to consider registering as a volunteer for these opportunities to help support the University at this time.
Please only register if you have the support of your manager to do so. The volunteering opportunities are intended to be done alongside your current role, utilising your spare capacity. These opportunities will not affect your pay or any of your other existing terms and conditions.
If you are a manager in an area of the University that requires additional support, and would like to receive the support of volunteers, please contact the HR team who will be in touch with further information.
