We are committed to diversifying the racial and ethnic profile of our community, and especially welcome applications from Black, Asian and minority ethnic candidates. We are seeking colleagues who have an understanding of equality, diversity and inclusion and how these principles can be applied in HE settings. We value self-awareness, in terms of understanding candidates’ own culture, identity, biases, prejudices, power, privilege and stereotypes, as well as a willingness to challenge practices that present barriers to different groups.

We recognise that there is a lot of uncertainty in the sector at present and full support would be provided for delivering any online teaching.
