I’m a member of staff: How can I get support and get involved?
As a member of staff, there are lots of ways you can both get and give support.
Join the campus launch
Thousands of staff, students and alumni joined together for the first ever University-wide photograph to celebrate the launch of Birmingham In Action. Thanks to everyone who came along - can you spot yourself below?
New: Staff volunteering allowance
The University is giving every member of staff an additional day of paid leave every year to volunteer for a cause that matters to you.
Staff at the University already volunteer many hours to support those in need, from helping charities to taking part in Junk Busters right here on campus. We want to help you do even more!
The extra day will form a central part of and be celebrated as part of the campaign, and is part of the University’s wider commitment to both the professional development of our staff and our civic responsibilities to our city and region.
Registrar and Secretary
“We are delighted to be able to offer colleagues one day each year to volunteer locally. As a signatory of the Civic University Agreement, this initiative recognises the valuable role that volunteering can play in supporting the communities in which our staff live and work.”

Could your research change a life, or make a difference to the world? Talk to us about the potential for funding.
The students you work with regularly may be eligible for bursaries, scholarships, mentors, career talks and more.
We’d love to join you for a chat over a cup of tea or present the campaign to your colleagues/department.
We need volunteers to measure plastic in their local rivers, translate for refugees and identify bugs in woodlands.
Students need mentors who are able to share their careers expertise. Can you help?
As staff, you already do so much. But if a particular cause has captured your attention, consider supporting it with a gift.
