What you need to know
The Department and University have many policies and, as a part of your induction, we would like to take this opportunity to highlight the few that you really need to be familiar with. Please take a moment to read through these and see how we like to do things here.
The full list of University Statutes, Regulations (including financial regulations), Policies and Codes of Practice can be found here (a good page to bookmark on your browser).
Equality and Diversity
This policy is designed to support an inclusive culture and highlight expectations of equality and diversity in the workplace
Harrassment and Bullying
The University does not tolerate any form of harassment or bullying and expects all members of the University community treat each other with respect, courtesy and consideration.
Health, Safety and Welfare
All new members of staff are required to familiarise themselves with the University Statement of Health and Safety Policy and the University's Health and Safety policy statements. The University has an Occupational Health Service and an Equality and Diversity Unit which are available to support our staff.
All University of Oxford staff have a responsibility to ensure that the information they hold is handled appropriately. Information Security training is mandatory for all our staff and needs to be completed once you have received your Oxford login.
This Policy sets out the University’s objectives and strategy for risk management, and the arrangements it has adopted to enable it to manage its risks.
CONFLICT OF INTEREST
All University staff and students are required to recognise and disclose activities that might give rise to conflicts of interest or the perception of conflicts and to ensure that such conflicts are seen to be properly managed or avoided.
Anti-Bribery and Anti-Fraud
The University is committed to conducting its activities fairly, honestly and openly.
PUBLIC INTEREST DISCLOSURE
The University places the greatest of importance on the integrity of its operations. This Code of Practice aims to assist any member of staff to disclose concerns without fear of retribution, and to provide a transparent and confidential process for dealing with these concerns.
