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.
Support and technical (Grades 1-5)
Academic related (Grades 6-10)
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.
Every Tuesday at 1.00pm in Seminar Room A/B, Level 6, West Wing there is a mandatory Health and Safety Induction for all new starters who have completed the online induction. At this session you will also meet a member of the NDCN Admin Team, and have the chance to ask questions. Contact firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any queries about this.
Depending on where you are based, you may well be required to attend another building induction (for example the FMRIB or Wolfson buildings).
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.
