Your first day and induction - hero

Your induction and first day toolkit

Your first day is different depending on the team you are working in. You could either be attending the Trust's induction or you could be welcomed into your new team, meeting new people and completing some mandatory e-Learning. Explore our ultimate first day induction checklist below. 


The ultimate first day checklist

Complete your e-Learning

If you did not manage to complete all your e-learning on your induction, it is a great idea to finish this on your first day. Your manager will support you with this. 

Don't forget the tea round!

If working on-site, remember to bring your own food and refreshments, at least on your first day. This will give you time to understand what on-site cafe options are available and local area around your workplace. 

Explore Connect

Connect is the Trust's intranet. It is a good idea to familiarise yourself with the intranet as this is where you can keep up to date with the  news and discover a huge library of staff support and information. 

Follow us on social media

We have a number of accounts that produce fantastic content and a Trust Facebook group that you can follow. More details are provided on the social media page of this kit. 

Say hello!

Get to know your colleagues and your department and familiarise yourself with your new workplace.
