As London’s Global University, we know diversity fosters creativity and innovation. We are committed to being fair and inclusive; a place where we all belong. We therefore encourage applications from candidates who have characteristics currently underrepresented in different sections of UCL’s workforce. These include people from Black, Asian and ethnic minority backgrounds; disabled, D/deaf and neurodiverse people; LGBTQ+ people; and women.
Across UCL, we recognise our responsibility to local communities. At UCL East, we therefore especially welcome applications for our positions from east London residents.
