It’s an exciting time to be working at Kent – we are a leading UK university producing world-class research and excellent teaching.

We have been shortlisted as University of the Year in both the Times Higher Education (THE) Awards and The Times/Sunday Times Good University Guide (2015). In June 2017, Kent was awarded a gold rating, the highest, in the UK Government’s Teaching Excellence Framework (TEF).

We are also a leading university for international outlook – in the top 10% according to the THE World University Rankings (2015-16). We are placed 17th in the UK for research intensity (REF) 2014, with 97% of our research deemed to be of international quality. Our almost 20,000 students rate us highly too – in the National Student Survey 2016, we achieved the fourth highest score for overall student satisfaction out of all publicly funded, multi-faculty universities.

Our reputation as a good place to work is reflected in our top ranking in the THE Best University Workplace Survey for two years running. We are a major employer with around 3,000 staff from over 120 countries, including more than 900 academic and research staff, and a full range of commercial services and administration staff.
