About The University of Gloucestershire
The University of Gloucestershire is a vibrant and dynamic community of some 10,000 students and 1,000 staff. We are a student centred, teaching-led, modern University. Our goals are to give our students outstanding support to learn in a community that values them as individuals and provides a breadth and richness of experience that prepares them to succeed in their chosen careers, achieve personal fulfilment and contribute to their communities.
Whilst we have roots in Cheltenham and Gloucester dating back nearly 200 years, our vision is one of transformation, for our students, our campuses and our communities. We pursue this purpose of transformation through relationships. We want our community to be distinguished by the quality of relationships between staff and students, valuing the face-to-face, operating on a human, personalised scale, and welcoming the diversity of views and experience. We want to be outward looking, intensively engaged with others to enrich our learning and research, and working in partnership for mutual benefit.
Delivering our ambitions depends on the skills, professionalism and engagement of our staff. The highest priority is therefore to recruit, retain and motivate excellent staff, and to create a working environment in which all staff can achieve their potential and be part of the transformational purpose of the University. In return we offer an excellent package of benefits including competitive salary and pension schemes; generous holiday entitlement, a minimum of 24 days’ annual leave; childcare voucher scheme; staff travel scheme; health and wellbeing including on site faith space and sports facilities; an Employee Assistance Programme and flexible and family-friendly working.
