Are you a good listener, non-judgemental and able to keep calm?

17 Jan 2022

Volunteer to join our in-house mediation scheme – attend our webinars on 28 January and 11 February to find out more

Hands up

We are looking for volunteers to join our in-house mediation scheme at the University, for which full accredited training will be given.

Are you a good listener… non-judgemental… able to keep calm and help people see different perspectives? Are you committed to helping colleagues manage their differences constructively to enable long term sustainable working relationships? Then why not volunteer to be a trained mediator?

Mediators play a vital role at the University and help us support staff who may experience bullying, harassment, discrimination or microaggressions. All of which – in any form – will not be tolerated at the University.

We are continuously striving to ensure staff feel supported in their working environments, and should an issue arise, that they are aware of the services and resources available to them. 

If you would like more information about training to be a volunteer mediator, or have any questions, please contact Tahira Majothi at:
