Register your interest in becoming a Digital Champion

As a member of staff become a Digital Champion and make a difference by supporting colleagues to work in better ways.

Empowering others to use digital tools

Help others get the most from our digital tools

By becoming a Digital Champion you will help others to use digital tools to communicate and collaborate in better ways.

If you’re passionate about sharing your enthusiasm for technology with others, we would love for you to apply to be part of our journey and share your knowledge and skills.

Starting with scenarios commonly experienced in Microsoft Teams, you will have the opportunity to contribute to the Network's long-term roadmap of development.

We hope the network will have colleagues from across the University and so we're currently looking for 1-2 Champions to represent your department or Faculty. There will, however, be further opportunities to join this network at a later date.

The Digital Champions Network will be launching during March and you will have until Thursday 2 March to register your interest for this current round of applications.
