Confidential advisers

Meet the confidential advisers for employees.

As an employee, if you are confronted with undesirable conduct in the workplace, you can contact a confidential adviser to ask a question or report a complaint. This could be related to, for example, sexual harassment, intimidation, discrimination or aggressive behaviour. They will listen to you and advise you on the best course of action. These conversations are informal and strictly confidential. The confidential advisers play an important role, by helping to create an atmosphere of a safe place for working and studying, where everyone feels welcome.
