Staff Welcome Fair

The Staff Welcome Fair is open to all new UoB staff, and provides an opportunity to meet other new starters, find out about the range of services and departments at the University, and see where you fit in.

The Staff Welcome Fair usually takes place in the iconic Wills Memorial Building as a half day session, and includes:

  • Welcome and introduction from Staff Engagement
  • Talk from a member of the University Management Team, including information about the University's history, culture, strategy and values
  • Overview of the organisational structure of the University and where you fit in
  • Market Stalls - hosted by a range of UoB departments
  • Tours of central campus leaving periodically

[The Staff Welcome Fair gave me a] good understanding of the various areas of the organisation and what UoB has to offer staff. A great introduction and felt welcomed as a new starter - left the event feeling positive to be part of UoB

It was great and I'm really glad I had the opportunity to go. It was good to get an understanding on how I fit into the overall structure of the university. The stalls gave me a good picture of various aspects of the university - I especially enjoyed finding out the benefits such as access to sporting facilities, career development, staff counselling service etc.
