Staff Guide May 2019

Our new Staff Guide – what do you think?

Our Staff Guide webpages were launched last December. And to mark their six-month anniversary, we’d like to hear what you like, and don’t like so much, about the new guide.

During June, we will be holding focus groups on the Staff Guide at our Canterbury and Medway campuses. They will be taking place on

  • Monday 10 June, 14.30-15.30 – Darwin Board Room, Canterbury
  • Thursday 13 June,  15.30-16.30 – Darwin Board Room, Canterbury
  • Wednesday 19 June, 14.30-15.30 – Medway Building (M2.04), Medway

The sessions will be led by Etienne Donzelot and Wendy Raeside from Corporate Communications who created the guide, with help from colleagues in other key teams such as WebDev and HR.

The Staff Guide aims to cover everything you need to know about working at Kent – with essential staff information in easy-to-search categories, such as:

  • Getting Started
  • Employment and Benefits
  • Professional and Personal Development
  • Day-to-Day Support
  • Teaching and Research
  • Safety and Wellbeing
  • On Campus

Although six months old, the Staff Guide is very much a work in progress and we are keen to hear your feedback so we ensure it works for you.

Sign-up for a focus group now – ideally by Friday 31 May – by emailing us at with your preferred day, time and venue.
