The telephone network at Oxford Brookes operates on an internal network. Your office phone or the phone you have access to use will have a unique four digit extension number. There is also a voicemail facility attached to each phone. To find out more about how to use the internal phone network, as well as how to set up a voicemail account, visit the phone directory.
Each member of staff has their own portal page which is linked to the HR system, CORE.
Your portal page will display your personal details as well as details about your position at Oxford Brookes. You will be able to access some of your personal information yourself and access your online payslips from this page. On your first day, you will receive an email to your staff account asking you to update your bank details and emergency contact details on your portal page.
You will need your staff number and your password to access your portal page. For further information on how to use and navigate around your portal page, visit the Staff HR Portal Training site.
When you arrive, your manager will give you a copy of the induction checklist. This will signpost key processes and policies you need to be aware of including information on Health and Safety.
Take some time on your first day and over your first week to work through the induction checklist. You should make sure you have completed this by the end of your probation period.
