Job Shadowing

Job shadowing is an accessible method of providing individuals with a unique opportunity to find out how other staff work and what their roles involve, as well as developing a deeper knowledge and understanding of other roles and functions within the University. It can also be used to provide an individual within a department the opportunity to work alongside colleagues so they can learn and develop within their current role, plus determine potential career opportunities and/or help to increase understanding of processes, improve performance especially in organisational skills, specific system skills or when a particular area of skill ‘goal’ has been identified.

For more information on the key aspects which may need to be considered in requesting, agreeing, planning, undertaking and reviewing a job shadowing opportunity please contact the Learning and Organisational Development Admin Team
