While not all preferences will necessarily be accommodated, as part of your application could you please indicate whether you would prefer to work in one or more of the following:

  • Faculty of Engineering and Design

  • Faculty of Science
  • School of Management

We truly believe that diversity of experience, perspectives, and backgrounds will lead to a better environment for our employees and students, so we encourage applications from all genders, backgrounds, and communities, particularly from under-represented groups including Black and Minority Ethnic (BAME) and those with disabilities, and value the positive impact that will have on our teams.

We have made a positive commitment towards gender equality and intersectionality receiving a Bronze Athena SWAN award, and we are actively working towards a Silver award. We are a family-friendly University, with an increasingly agile workforce, we are open to flexible working arrangements. We’re also proud to be a disability confident employer and are happy to discuss any reasonable adjustments you may require.
