Career Research Champion (PDRAs)

At the department we have a Career Research Champion. During your first week of employment they will get in touch to arrange a meeting.


The Personal Development Review (PDR) are a chance to review your development as a staff member. It is an opportunity to agree goals and objectives and should be viewed as a two-way process between the reviewer (often the named PI/ line manager) and reviewee.
