We are looking for forward-thinking, innovative, curious, high-energy, self-aware people who are passionate about making a positive difference and who will thrive in an inclusive and diverse University community who are never not moving forwards.

As one of the most socially inclusive and international Universities and comprising one of the most diverse staff populations in the UK (50% of our professoriate identify from black or minority ethnic backgrounds), we are hugely proud of our track record in reducing inequalities (ranked 1st in the UK & 2nd globally, Times Higher Education Global Impact Rankings, 2020) and our commitment to equality, diversity and inclusion is at the heart of Vision 2028.

We are building an environment of success where colleagues are supported to achieve, and our community can flourish and thrive.

With Athena Swan Awards and being one of a small number of Universities to have achieved the Race Equality Charter Award, we continue on our journey to address and reduce barriers to opportunity.

So, if you are looking to build your career in a dynamic, inclusive and performance-focused team and are inspired by our environment and drive for success, we want you to apply to join the University of East London. We are looking for inspirational individuals who have a passion to make a positive difference to people and planet, creating a more sustainable future for everyone.

The Nursing programmes at UEL have grown dynamically over the last 3 years. This saw the development of our new Pre-registration Nursing courses as well as the development of the Nursing Associate programme in 2018. UEL is committed to the future of nursing and is involved in creating apprenticeship pathways across both the FdSc and BSc programmes to enhance the widening participation offer that UEL has. This is a very exciting time to join an enthusiastic team of academics who are able to shape and influence the development of the growing UEL nursing provision. As part of this development we are looking to recruit an experienced Midwife who understands the importance of Education and would like to be part of developing a midwifery course at the University of East London.
