At Kingston we are passionate about the power of a university education to transform lives. We strive for our students to be sought-after for their academic achievements and their ability to shape society and contribute to the economy.
We are inclusive
One of the most inclusive institutions in the country, we are ranked top 10 among London universities, and in the top 200 young universities in the world. We are passionate about enhancing our students' life chances by helping them make the most of their learning opportunity and we are committed to opening up higher education to the whole community.
We are diverse
The University has an international outlook and commitment to cultural diversity. Our 15,000+ students learn a broad range of subjects in a community from more than 140 countries. We are one of only eight institutions in the UK to be recognised with a Race Equality Charter Award. Our students study and our staff work on our multi-disciplined campuses. Artists and designers study alongside engineers, scientists, healthcare professionals and business minds to blend the student experience across subjects and solve the problems faced by today’s diverse society.
We transform lives
We are recognised for our outstanding work in supporting all our students - in reducing the BAME attainment gap, in our Head Start programme to introduce students to university life, and in providing a constant support network for those who have experienced a care background or are estranged from their families. Our graduates have an unrivalled reputation for starting their own businesses – among the top in the country – and we encourage all students to take an enterprising approach to their future career.
We have impact
We consider research to be integral to our distinctiveness, success and sustainability. It plays a vital part in contributing to the quality of our learning and teaching. Our research has helped shape government policy in the UK and is making important contributions to public life across the globe, responding to the major scientific and intellectual challenges of today. We continue to expand our research reputation through fostering a collaborative, outward-looking research culture across the Institution.
We are building a sustainable future
These are challenging times in higher education. We recognised the changing environment some time ago at Kingston, and are now in the final stages of reshaping our University to deliver for our staff and students in a more dynamic and demanding sector. Our enhanced academic performance is reflected in our growing position in the market. We have transformed behaviours and ways of working to instil the high-performing culture that will allow us the capacity and creativity to thrive.
We are seeking candidates from all walks of life who will not only help us continue our ambitious programme of growth, but will celebrate our successes and advocate for Kingston as a creative and dynamic learning environment. The HR function is central to our ambition and future. Join our team and, whatever your particular expertise, you will have a part to play in shaping our future. If you feel that could be you, we would be delighted to hear from you.
