Working at Kent

What does it mean to work at Kent?

We have a vision. By 2025 we will be delivering one of the best education and student experiences in the UK, transforming lives and prospects regardless of background. Our research and innovation will match the best in the world. Our contribution to social, economic, cultural, intellectual and public life will make us a leading civic university.

To deliver this vision, we have developed a strategy that includes making bold changes to our organisational structure, practice and career pathways – as well as building on existing strengths, such as Signature Research Themes, and focusing on priority areas like Kent and Medway Medical School and the Institute for Creative and Cultural Industries.

We recognise the crucial importance of recruiting and retaining people who can help shape and implement our strategy over the next five years and beyond. People who are eager to challenge the old way of doing things. People who want to explore new possibilities for interdisciplinary working that bring together academic and professional services teams, leaders and staff, to give everyone the freedom to achieve.

Kent is also - and will remain - an international university with strong European links. Please refer to our Kent Global page to discover more.
