University of Essex

Come to work at Essex

We believe a person's potential is not simply defined by grades or backgrounds, but by a willingness to question, to collaborate and to push at the edges of knowledge and their own potential. At the University of Essex we've been challenging conventions since 1964 – come and challenge us!

Our staff and students are members of the University for life, working together in a research-led educational environment to inspire us to want to explore and embrace what we do not yet know.

As an employer we offer a range of benefits and a commitment to career development and equal opportunities in an environment that both reflects and creates a rich interaction of people, disciplines and ideas.

If you have any questions and can't find the answers, please just email us at staffing@essex.ac.uk.
