The Coffee with Colleagues scheme offers everyone working at the University the opportunity to invite a colleague they have never met in person, or do not know very well, to talk about their respective role over a cup of coffee (or tea!).
This year, there is now also a “Mystery Colleague” option for more adventurous colleagues willing to be matched with a colleague at random.
Registration is open until Friday 6 April but don’t wait too long to register as numbers are limited and vouchers allocated on a first-come first-served basis.
If you want to take advantage of this offer, all you will need to do is complete a short form giving details about yourself and your guest. The registration form can be found on our webpage – click here to access the form.
If you are successful, you will receive an email mid-April confirming that a drinks voucher for two has been loaded onto your KentOne card and can be redeemed at one of the University’s commercial services outlets (Canterbury and Medway).
If you have chosen the “Mystery Colleague” option you will be given the name of the person you have been matched with so that you can get in contact and organise your coffee encounter.
Coffee with Colleagues is part of the Kent Colleagues Connect programme, jointly funded by the Academic Division, Commercial Services and Learning & Organisational Development. This programme offers a number of opportunities throughout the year to meet colleagues across the University in an informal setting and learn more about their role. The full programme can be found here.
