Your First Week
meeting Human Resources
On your first day, you will meet with a member of our HR team. If you haven't already, you must provide documents to prove your right to work in the UK.
The HR staff member will provide you with:
- Your University card, which is a form of identification, and information about how to gain access to departmental buildings and rooms
- Details of how to access your computer and the departmental network in addition to information about your Single Sign-On (SSO), which grants you access to the University's IT facilities, including email.
When you receive your contract, please read through it carefully to understand the terms and conditions of your new post. If you have any questions you can contact our HR Team. Details of your employment will be outlined in your Contract and Statement of terms and conditions of employment.

meeting your team
Next, you will be welcomed by your new line manager and/or team; we have created a checklist to ensure you get all the information you need.
The NDCN Welcome Induction takes place in Seminar Room C on Level 6, West Wing of the John Radcliffe Hospital (JR) at 11.00am on alternate Thursdays. However, if you are not based at the JR site it is arranged at a convenient location or can be delivered online via Microsoft Teams. You will need further local inductions specific to the buildings you routinely work in.
Your Oxford Single Sign-On (SSO) account gives you access to multiple services.
Accessing your emails
Once your SSO is set-up, you can access your emails and calendar with this quick-start guide.
Accessing the network
Once your University card has been issued, you will be able to apply for a MSD IT Network account so that you can log on to a PC and access shared drives. Check with your line manager or the HR team to see if they have already requested this for you.
