External - Cambridge Enterprise Ltd: Consultancy 101 Finished 09:30 - 13:30 University Centre, Hicks Room

Are you considering becoming a consultant? Perhaps you are already consulting, but want to learn more about how to work more effectively, get the best price for your skills or simplify admin work? This is an ideal opportunity to develop your skills, providing a refresher for academics already acting as consultants or an introduction for those considering consultancy in the near future.

Consultants use expertise gained from University research in order to provide services to external organisations. Any University researcher can undertake consultancy work, but it can be challenging to manage and administrate alongside University teaching and research commitments.

Cambridge Enterprise is delighted to offer this free workshop in how to manage consultancy projects effectively, sharing expertise on best practice, tips on making life easier and trouble-shooting for some of the key issues faced by consultants.

This workshop is designed for all levels of experience and we welcome applications from anyone who is currently employed by the University.

The application system is being rolled out in a series of pilot phases.

From 15 November 2018, the next pilot will open, which will allow all EU staff working at a UK HEI to access the scheme and make an application for ‘Settled’ or ‘Pre-Settled’ status in advance of the public rollout. The pilot will be open until 21 December 2018.

With the introduction of this pilot, we are pleased to offer a series of briefings for staff which will provide information on current residency rights, and a detailed overview of the ‘Settled’ and ‘Pre-Settled’ status application process. These briefings will provide you with information about the EU Settlement Scheme and help you to make an application if you wish to do so, in advance of the full rollout next year.

The briefings will be led by Graeme Ross, the Immigration and Compliance Manager at the University, who is an experienced UK and EU immigration practitioner.

Inclusive Leadership Programme Launch Event new Finished 15:15 - 16:30 The Pitt Building, Darwin Room

Leaders and managers in academic, research and professional service roles are invited to join Professor Eilís Ferran, Pro-Vice-Chancellor for Institutional and International Relations, to find out more about the new Inclusive Leadership Programme. The event will outline the programme’s key aims and content, designed to support the critical role that leaders and managers play in shaping a positive working environment, supporting progression and ensuring equality.

In her recent statement, Professor Ferran said:

"Achieving equality for all is of fundamental importance to the University and its employees. Both the monitoring of equalities data and feedback from our staff, for example in the Vice-Chancellor’s mycambridge consultation and in the recent staff survey, makes it clear that we need to do more to actively promote an inclusive culture, ensure good management practice and support our staff with their career development. I fully endorse the programmes and encourage you to take the opportunity to participate and support others to do so as well. This is an exciting opportunity for us to take a frank look at how inclusive we currently are and, by working together, how we can make progress towards our goal of achieving equality of pay and opportunity at the University."

NB Registration and refreshments will be available from 3pm. For further information about the Inclusive Leadership Programme and to book a place please see Related courses below.
