The University is conducting its first staff-wide survey this month and is encouraging all members of staff to take part and say what they think about a range of workplace topics.

It runs from 4 to 25 March. Staff with a University email address are being emailed the link to the survey. (Here in Chemistry, the survey link was emailed out by our Head of Department on Monday.) Those without will receive a paper copy of the survey. It should only take about 20 minutes to complete online. There are questions about our job, our opportunities for career progression, work-life balance, remuneration, staff benefits and support services, as well as other topics including management and leadership, communication and whether we feel valued as individuals. Responses will anonymous.

When the Vice-Chancellor’s mycambridge consultation was carried out, the feedback given included major concerns from staff about low pay and disparities between pay levels, along with threats to pensions and the increasing unaffordability of living in Cambridge.

This survey is intended to be a vehicle for staff to say where the University should focus resource over the coming years so it can enhance the benefits and forms of support that matter to its employees.

Questions can be sent to the staff survey project team by emailing
