CIMComp People

The Hub’s vision places people at the heart of all we do and inspires us to excel by working together to maximise the benefits of our diversity and collective capabilities. The Hub is committed to fostering a culture of mutual respect and creating an enriched environment that enables people to thrive and realise their full potential.

We are committed to recruiting our members from diverse gender and cultural backgrounds, ensuring there are no trends of disadvantage for those with protected characteristics, and ensuring equal opportunities are available to all staff and students. Please take a look at our Equality, Diversity and Inclusion policy to see how we continue to engage with our community and act upon equality data.

We also strive to ensure that Hub affiliated staff and students at all levels are supported to grow professionally during their affiliation with the Hub. Please look at our Staff Development Policy to see our framework, and how we continue to improve this provision through staff and student feedback.

Researcher Network

The Researchers Network, led by the researchers themselves, aims to enhance the ‘cohort experience’ through events to promote research collaboration, sharing of expertise and social engagement. The strong cohesion between the researchers enables efficient sharing of information and developments in the field, facilitates visits and exchange of people, and establishes partnerships in research programmes.
