University of Greenwich careers below, visit this page for more jobs and employers in Kent. If you visit the University of Greenwich job pages you'll find listings of current vacancies for academic and non-academic positions. Greenwich usually group vacancies for all their campuses (Avery Hill, Mansion Site, Bexley Road, Eltham & Southwood Site, Avery Hill Road, Eltham - Greenwich, Old Royal Naval College, Park Row, Greenwich - Medway, Central Avenue Chatham Maritime) on the same jobs page.
In common with most of the higher education employers, vacancies tend to be more plentiful at the end of term/academic year than at the beginning. Most institutions expect to have vacancies filled for the start of term. However with organisations as big as the University of Greenwich, University of Kent and Canterbury Christ Church University you can expect some recruitment to take place on a rolling basis.
The University began life as Woolwich Poly, one of the oldest such institutions in the UK. Woolwich evolved over time into Thames Polytechnic which expanded through the 1970s and 1980s until it was granted University status in the early 1990s.
Today the University is highly regarded as a teaching institution and according to their own website they are rated by the Sunday Times as London's leading university for teaching excellence.
The teaching activities at the Medway campus have a strong emphasis on business, enterprise and Engineering, this is obviously reflected in any lecturing vacancies that might be published. Administrative, general and technical jobs are much more generic.
Set in the Dockyard, tens of millions of pounds have been spent upgrading the Edwardian facilities. The site includes The splendid Pilkington Building, The Centre for Sport & Exercise Science, The Drill Hall, The Medway School of Pharmacy, The Wolfson Centre, The Natural Resources Institute and much more.How To Apply To The University Of Greenwich
