Brighton & Hove City Council Employee Induction Programme

The overall aim of this page is to present information to you in a digestible way, with signposts and links to those things that we feel are most relevant in those early days of employment.

When people join a new organisation, or start a new role in the same organisation, there is a lot of new information to absorb, new people to meet, understand what’s expected of you in your role or just find out how some of the work place basics operate - printers, passes, photocopiers and the like.

In a complex organisation such as the council, there are different requirements, based on your role, where you work and what your responsibilities are. Some of these apply to everyone – health and wellbeing, some aspects relate to your position in the council – finance systems training for budget holders.

Most organisations have a series of events/training to welcome people. Brighton and Hove is no different and details of what is available can be found below. Most importantly, do not forget to ask your manager or immediate colleagues if you need any information or guidance.
