All new starters are entitled to a buddy or mentor as part of their induction, to help them settle in more quickly. You don’t have to have take part in the Buddy Scheme but we recommend you have someone to help you in your first few months at King’s.
They are a friendly ear, offering advice on how to get things done, sort out problems and generally get used to life and work at the Trust.
Having a buddy gives you a chance to talk freely with another member of staff. Everything you say to them is absolutely confidential: nothing gets written down and nothing gets said to anyone else.
