The University offers every individual the opportunity to succeed. We want our staff to represent multi-faceted life experiences, varied cultural heritage and to encourage cognitive diversity. We recognise that the field is not ‘level’ and want to actively address barriers to progression. Markers of success to date include a low gender pay gap within the School where this post sits (6%) and holding an Athena Swan Bronze Award. We also challenge stereotypes and partner with networks both within and outside of the University to enhance inclusion in the workplace. We wholeheartedly encourage applications from BAME and LGTBQ candidates, who are currently under-represented within the School.

We offer a range of employee benefits including generous annual leave and discounted Sports Village memberships, personal and professional development and family-friendly policies. #GoHerts
