Jobs at Birkbeck / Working at Birkbeck

Welcome to Birkbeck, University of London

I am delighted to welcome you to Birkbeck.

Birkbeck is a unique institution within the UK higher education system. We are the UK’s leading provider of part-time face-to-face courses for mature students and the largest single provider of such courses in London.

Birkbeck has an international reputation for the quality of its research and teaching. But, more than that, Birkbeck has a unique social mission – to provide universal access to the benefits of learning and particularly to provide opportunities in higher education to students who may be in full-time employment, or who may not have had the opportunity to study at an earlier stage in their lives. This has always been the central mission of Birkbeck, ever since it was established over 180 years ago, and it is one that we are proud to stand by.

Today, Birkbeck offers students, from diverse educational, cultural and social backgrounds, an extensive range of undergraduate and postgraduate programmes across the disciplines, as well as an unrivalled choice of both vocational and non-vocational courses. This is what makes Birkbeck a special place to study.

Birkbeck is also a special place in which to work. Feedback from both staff and students clearly shows that the expertise, hard work and commitment of colleagues across the College, from academics to maintenance staff, school administrators to researchers, is the foundation upon which Birkbeck has forged its reputation as a centre of teaching and research excellence.

In line with our mission, we believe in looking after our staff and, accordingly, there are many benefits and opportunities available to you as a member of Birkbeck staff.

I hope that you will enjoy your career at Birkbeck.
