We are proud of our people and our diversity. All applicants will receive equal consideration in their application regardless of race, gender, sexual orientation, disability or how you identify and we encourage applications from diverse backgrounds.

We know the best teams are made up of inclusive groups of diverse people, and everyone’s contribution counts. With the support of our partners and employees, we’re building a culture where difference is encouraged. We set out to recruit the best people for the job irrespective of age, disability, sex, race, religion or belief, gender reassignment and sexual orientation, marriage and civil partnership and pregnancy and maternity.

We are unable to employ anyone who does not have the legal right to live and work in the UK. If you are from outside the UK and do not possess immigration status which allows you to live and work in the UK, we will be unable to progress your application as Wesleyan are unable to provide sponsorship. Therefore, in the recruitment process all candidates are required to provide the necessary right to work information and documentation.

Any unsolicited submissions from agencies will be accepted as a direct application from the candidate and no fees will be payable.

We reserve the right depending on application numbers to close or extend the closing dates for positions; we would therefore recommend an early application.
