At UEL we are committed to working together to build a learning community founded on equality of opportunity – a learning community which celebrates the rich diversity of our student and staff populations.
We aim to attract and retain the best possible staff and offer a unique working environment which combines a tradition of academic excellence and innovation with a location at the heart of a dynamic region. We are very well connected, with the Jubilee and Central Lines, Channel Tunnel Rail Link, Elizabeth Line (opening 2019), City airport and Docklands Light Railway close to our Stratford and Docklands campuses. Neighbouring Canary Wharf, combined with the rapid development throughout East London now make this one of the most stimulating parts of London in which to live and work.
In choosing to work at UEL you will join a student population of more than 17,000 people from over 135 countries and over 1300 staff from over 66 countries. Our campuses reflect a diverse, dynamic community.
The university achieved Athena SWAN bronze in 2017 and have committed to the Race Equality Charter with intention to submit in 2019. We are also part of the Disability Confident scheme and through our membership of Stonewall, we aim to ensure our community is inclusive of all and to ensure all lesbian, gay, bi and trans people have the support to enable to reach their potential.
