General Information

Support Staff Association: Home Page

The Support Staff Association (SSA) is the body that represents all University support staff and in doing so provides them with a voice across the University by representing their interests on a variety of sub-committees and groups. It also provides a means whereby support staff can express their views and opinions to the Board of Governors, Academic Council and the Vice-Chancellor. The SSA also aims to help promote and foster a spirit of cooperation between its members.

There are more than 1,300 support staff working across the University in very diverse roles. As a member of support staff you are automatically a member of the SSA and have the power to vote at general meetings.

We are always interested in hearing your views and opinions on any subject related to your working life. We are also very keen to hear from any member interested in getting involved in the work of the SSA.

Any member of staff with concerns about treatment from other staff members or students is encouraged to view the University's Dignity and Respect Policy (with reference to the flowcharts in the appendices) or contact Dave Small, Equality and Diversity Manager direct by email or by phone 023 9284 5774. All enquiries will be treated in strictest confidence.
