Head of Student Records & Awards - Keele University



Equality, Diversity and Inclusion Keele University values equality and diversity across our workforce and welcomes applications from individuals from all sectors of society. Where there is evidence of under-representation of a particular group in a specific type of role or at a certain grade the University is committed to taking appropriate action to actively encourage applications from that group. The University is keen to support all applicants during the recruitment and selection process where possible and particularly those with additional requirements. Applicants with disabilities are asked to identify in their application if they require any adjustments to the process. If shortlisted candidates have childcare responsibilities, the University may be able to provide on-site care during the interview/selection process, subject to availability. If childcare is not available Skype interviews can be explored. Applicants are asked to discuss their specific needs with the recruiting manager. The University aims to support employees to balance work/life commitments, which includes giving consideration to requests for flexible working, part-time working, job-share, etc. As a Defence Employer Recognition Scheme silver award holder and having signed up to the Armed Forces Covenant the University supports the Armed Forces and welcomes applications from members of the Armed Forces community (veterans, service leavers, reservists, Cadet Force adult volunteers and spouses of serving personnel).

The University is committed to making Keele a place where learning, living and working is a positive experience for all and currently holds a number of equality awards. Athena Swan
