We are a thriving, multi-campus coastal university delivering innovative career-focused courses at undergraduate and postgraduate degree level and our research and teaching transforms lives and benefits communities worldwide. The university offers a wide range of jobs in both academic and support roles, with competitive salaries and flexible working opportunities.

Equality, diversity and inclusion

We are strongly committed to developing and nurturing an inclusive working and learning community by embracing equality and diversity in our working, learning and teaching environment and through the impact of our activities at a local, national and international level.

We recognise the crucial role that diversity plays in enabling the achievement of our staff, our students and our university as a whole and we also believe that higher education has a central role to play in furthering equality and inclusion on a wider societal level.

We continue to create a culture and environment which values and respects staff, students, partners and the community from all backgrounds and identities, recognising that this diversity enriches the university at all levels.
