Your future starts here

Welcome to the University of Kent's recruitment website, where you will find details of our current employment opportunities.

Kent has a vision. By 2025 we will be delivering one of the best education and student experiences in the UK, transforming lives and prospects regardless of background. Our research and innovation will match the best in the world. Our contribution to social, economic, cultural, intellectual and public life will make us a leading civic university.

To deliver this vision, we have developed a strategy that includes making bold changes to our organisational structure, practice and career pathways – as well as building on existing strengths, such as Signature Research Themes, and focusing on priority areas like Kent and Medway Medical School and the Institute for Creative and Cultural Industries.

We remain committed to our role as an international university at the gateway to London and the UK, and to our four postgraduates centres on the European continent. We are proud to have been awarded gold, the highest rating, in the Teaching Excellence Framework (TEF), while the most recent Research Excellence Framework (REF) ranked us 17th in the UK for research intensity, with world-leading research in all our subjects.

Now, as we adapt to the latest challenges facing this sector, we are reshaping the way we work together - academic and professional services teams, leaders and staff - in order to become even more responsive and to ensure that we all have the tools we need to achieve our ambitions over the next five years and beyond.
