We are passionate about using the latest psychological knowledge and research to improve people’s work lives, both through teaching and consultancy.
We run both undergraduate and postgraduate electives that explore the interface between business and psychology, seeking to develop business students’ understandings of psychological insights and applications.
Our cluster aims to:
Encourage staff members with a psychology background to build on their expertise and develop their teaching and research.
Provide a point of contact for work psychology consultancy projects.
Develop research projects that draw on the knowledge and expertise of all members.
Who are we?
We are a welcoming and friendly group, open to anyone who is interested in psychology and how it can be applied at work. We have two types of members in our cluster:
Contributing Members are those who are active in the field of work psychology and contribute to our meetings or seminars by sharing their expertise.

If you’re interested in finding out more or joining the cluster, come along to any of our events or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
