This is an opportunity to join a highly successful and ambitious education team in a University, which is globally renowned for the quality of its learning and teaching.

We aim to be an inclusive university, where difference is celebrated, respected and encouraged. We 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 such as Black and Minority Ethnic (BAME) backgrounds and people with disabilities, and value the positive impact they 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, and are open to flexible working arrangements.
