Our academic-related and assistant staff groups are made up of professional, technical, manual and administrative roles.

When searching for a vacancy, we encourage you to look across our staff groups as the types of opportunities you are seeking may be found in different categories. For example:

  • Roles which include teaching responsibilities may be academic or academic-related.
  • Roles which include providing some administrative support to research activity may be assistant or research.

The University also has its own Temporary Employment Service which provides temporary assignments throughout the University.

You can also search for opportunities available within the 31 independent and autonomous colleges which form part of the collegiate University, as well as institutions closely affiliated with the University, such as Cambridge Assessment. Colleges and affiliated institutions are separate employers from the University of Cambridge and offer their own terms and conditions of employment.

The University values diversity and is committed to equality of opportunity.

Job description and person specification

4.1 A Job Description (JD) will be produced for any vacant post using the UCL Job Description template. It will clearly and accurately set out the duties and responsibilities of the job.

4.2 Within the Job Description, there will be a section dedicated to the Person Specification, which outlines the qualifications, experience and knowledge, skills and abilities, and personal attributes required to perform the job. The criteria are either essential or desirable, with interview panel members assessing candidates against these criteria. Guidance on writing a Job Description and Person Specification can be found here including behavioural indicators relating to the UCL Ways of Working framework.

4.3 Where security checks, a Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS) check or professional registration (e.g. General Medical Council), are a relevant condition of employment for a job, the requirements must be specified in the job description or person specification.

4.4 In line with UCL’s commitment to equality, diversity and inclusion, the Person Specification will include the following criterion (or an equivalent criterion that is more specific and relevant to the post) for Senior and Middle Management jobs:

  • Grades 9 and 10 – essential criterion of ‘Demonstrable contribution to advancing equality, diversity and inclusion’.
  • Grades 7 and 8 – desirable criterion of ‘Commitment to and knowledge of advancing equality,
  • diversity and inclusion’.
