There are around 2,000 people working at Kingston, and 18,000 students learning with us, every year. We provide 260 undergraduate, postgraduate and apprenticeship degrees, from fashion to entrepreneurship, from nursing to engineering.
Kingston is committed to academic research and working with industry partners throughout its disciplines. We contribute to the international research agenda across sciences, the social sciences, and the arts and humanities. In the 2014 Research Excellence Framework, 60% of our research was judged either world leading, or internationally excellent.
Making education open to all is central to what we believe. In fact, 40 per cent of our students come from homes where they are the first generation to attend university, 60 per cent of our students identify as being from Asian, Black and other minority ethnic backgrounds, 50 per cent of our students commute more than 50 minutes to get here and a large amount of our students work alongside their studies to support themselves.
Making our workplace open to people of all backgrounds and beliefs is core to our ethos too. Because of this, the University is a vibrant and fair place to work. What’s more, Kingston is known for being a lively, historic town, with plenty of green space and excellent transport links to central London.
When working here we hope you’ll feel inspired and motivated by the investment we make in the student and staff experience. Such as our award-winning Town House building; our award-winning KU Cares programme which supports care leavers, estranged students, young adult carers and sanctuary scholars; our annual Big Read reading scheme where staff and students vote for a book to read together, available for free on campus and sent to students before their arrival.
Our staff deliver great results for our students, the University, and the wider community:
We look for proactive and motivated individuals to grow with us and continue to innovate and deliver for our students. We have a diverse range of roles and offer training and projects to develop your skills and progress in your career.
