Be up to Something

4 volunteers looking down onto camera

Heather Owen (Assistant Head Secretariat at Defence Infrastructure) explains how an unusual volunteering activity has developed the confidence and capability of a member of staff, inspired her team to use their volunteering days and benefited the local community.

Discovery Sessions - A North West record breaker is back

We were bowled over by the demand for our brand new Discovery Session - Dealing with the bumps in the road. And our attendees at the first session in Liverpool thought it was a great session. Don't miss a chance to attend it yourself. It's an introduction to some tools and techniques to help you recover quick from disappointments and 'failures' at work. You might find some of them help you in your personal life too.

Experience life in a different department

We're delighted to add secondment opportunities to our People Connections programme. It's a way to connect with colleagues from other departments across our region to learn new skills; share best practice and bring something back to your own department. Find out more about exciting, short-term, development opportunities at the Environment Agency and HMRC.
