Are you a current student? If we have no vacancies at present or a particular role doesn’t fit with what you’re looking for, there are other avenues to explore.

Volunteering can offer you a valuable alternative to traditional employment, providing an opportunity for hands-on experience that not only enhances your employability, but also offers you the opportunity to develop a wide range of skills and knowledge while supporting others and the environment.

We also recommend accessing the University Careers Service. They can help develop your job application skills, CV writing, interview and presentation preparation and overall general advice on the recruitment process.

Our workplace champions the right of staff to embrace all Afro-hairstyles. We acknowledge that Afro-textured hair is an important part of our Black employees’ racial, ethnic, cultural, and religious identities, and requires specific styling for hair health and maintenance.

We celebrate Afro-textured hair worn in all styles including, but not limited to, afros, locs, twists, braids, cornrows, fades, hair straightened through the application of heat or chemicals, weaves, wigs, headscarves, and wraps.

In this workplace, we recognise and celebrate our colleagues’ identities. We are a community built on an ethos of equality and respect where hair texture and style have no bearing on an employee’s ability to succeed.
