FD Staff Voice

FD Staff Voice

The FD Staff Voice is a group of volunteer employee representatives from across the whole service.

They meet regularly to discuss ideas, questions and concerns raised by their colleagues.

It provides challenge on FD-related matters and University initiatives, instigates discussions that find solutions, and helps deliver those solutions.​

A forum where staff can participate in the debates that shape their working experience, it encourages the service to work together as ‘One FD’.

How does it work?


The group is made up of Staff Voice Ambassadors drawn from each service in the FD​.


  • Are the nominated staff members who take feedback from their colleagues to Staff Voice meetings​
  • Attend meetings and participate in change initiatives and projects​
  • Report back to their colleagues on the outcome of Staff Voice meetings​
  • Are in role for 12 months​

There will also be Staff Voice Champions to support the ambassadors in gathering feedback from colleagues and reporting on Staff Voice activities. ​Attendance at meetings will not be required unless covering absence.

Each service has one ambassador and at least one champion.​ Larger services have several champions

Both roles are voluntary and unpaid but offer many opportunities for development.

There will be a Staff Voice Facilitator drawn from outside the FD.

Leadership commitment

As part of the delivery of the People & Culture aim in Our Way Ahead, the senior management team in the FD are committed to supporting the FD Staff Voice. Time, training and resources will be made available for the delivery of projects agreed by the group.​

This is a real opportunity for any member of staff to shape the future of the FD and make a genuine difference to how we all work.

Who are our Staff Voice representatives?

Staff Voice is part of the People & Culture aim set out in Our Way Ahead. As a forum for staff to participate in debates and raise questions and ideas, it is integral to shaping the future of the FD.
