and how it works.

  • processes involved;
  • support that can be accessed;

  • confirming timescales and local processes.

There will be an interactive session where you will be able to bring your CV and get some pointers to help with future applications to promotion.  Due to the interactive nature, you will need to book in advance.  Space is limited and we will not be able to accommodate staff who do not book a place.
