Staff recruitment and progression

The numbers of minority ethnic staff at Oxford reflect the position in most leading universities and higher education in general. However, we think there is more work to be done and we are committed to recruiting the best from as diverse a group of candidates as possible, and to ensuring that once here all staff have equal opportunities to succeed in their careers.

Recruiting an increasingly diverse staff body in all types of roles is one of our priorities over the next few years. We'll be refining and adding to our work in this area as the Race Equality Charter work progresses - but there are projects underway.

Engaging the local community

We’re running a small-scale research project with the local community, to learn more about possible ways in which we can engage and make the University an attractive employer to the diverse community in Oxford. We’ll be talking to various community leaders to find out their thoughts, and we’ll hold a careers day to share information and answer questions about applying and working at the University.
