Administrative and supportive staff (OBP)

Do you have certain qualities that you would like to further develop at work? Have you talked about following a course during your annual evaluation and would you like advice about this? Do you wonder if you are still in the right job? Would you like something different but don’t know where or how to start? Do you sometimes feel stuck at work?

UM believes it is important that everyone has the opportunity to further develop themselves and to take control of their own development. For questions regarding career- and work-related development, as well as team development programmes, administrative and support staff can turn to the Staff Career Centre.
