Recruitment, Retention & Forward Planning - Andy Baillie University of Strathclyde
Cleaning Services at Strathclyde University operates with a cleaning team with more than
250 staff operating various shifts including day shift, back shift, night shift and also
weekends. Like most Universities Strathclyde have had major problems when it comes to
recruitment, this workshop will discuss the procedures we have followed to recruit the staff
we required. We will also discuss methods on how we streamlined the procedures to speed
up the process giving us a better opportunity to offer appointments. Andy will also discuss
a pilot scheme he has developed with local councils in Scotland giving school leavers a
taster session on potential career opportunities within Facilities management in
Universities.


Using a Wellness Action Plan - SAMH

This session is run by SAMH and will introduce participants to the wellness action plan &

Career Pathways - Julie Chew

Amazing Development Opportunity to Meet your Needs
Would you like to be involved in a new development initiative through BACHE? Would you like to
learn the knowledge, skills and behaviours that will support you in your current role and prepare
your for your future roles as you progress through your career?

Julie Chew, a highly skilled, passionate, personable development trainer and coach will give us an
overview of a modular programme that is being proposed on day one and a taster workshop on day
two.
The Programme
It will start by looking at where you are now by increasing your self-awareness and highlighting your
development needs. It will then look at where you want to be by establishing your current goals and
aspirations for those for the future. Finally, it will look at how we are going to get there by creating a
development/growth plan that will support you through your career journey.
There will be a number of modules that you can then attend which will build and embed your
knowledge, skills and behaviours to equip you for your current role and your future career choices.
Some examples will be how to best to manage yourself, including how to prioritise and allocate work
effectively, how to delegate and how to manage your time. See attached potential overview of the
modules for you to look at and provide feedback at the conference.
It is proposed to be flexible in its approach so you can join us for the whole journey and gain the full
certificate or simply attend the modules that are important to you.
I hope you are as excited as we are with this new initiative. We want to make sure we develop
something that is going to fit your needs so this will be your opportunity at the conference to input into
the planning stages so your thoughts and ideas can be included.
