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.
