About Birmingham

Walking across campus - the Learning Centre

The University is one of the largest and most diverse employers in Birmingham. Our 6,000 staff come from across the region, the country and the world to work with us in a range of roles. This is not only because of our outstanding academic reputation, but because we foster a culture where people have an equal access to opportunities, where challenge is valued and where a good work/life balance can be enjoyed.

We recognise that, for some, joining an organisation as large and prestigious as the University can appear daunting; therefore, we provide a number of opportunities and resources to help our new staff settle into their jobs and into the University community.

We offer excellent personal and professional development, assisting you in your career progression and allowing you to enjoy new training opportunities. Not many employers can offer this along with a vibrant culture where 92% of our staff are willing to 'go the extra mile' (Staff Survey 2009) in truly beautiful surroundings. 

Professor David Eastwood, Vice-Chancellor "We have a sympathetic working environment where the best can flourish and excellence is valued wherever it is found."
