International Staff

International staff make up 29.5% of our academic staff and 16% of the total staff population at the University. Attracting staff from overseas is critical to the delivery of our aim to enrich the teaching experience of our students to produce truly global citizens who can contribute to today's global society.

Professor Sir David Eastwood, Vice-Chancellor and Principal  "We are already established as being amongst the world's top one hundred universities but we want to rise further and be amongst the very few premier global universities. We will achieve this through the excellence of our research and teaching, as well as the quality of our staff and the exceptional nature of our graduates."

There are many benefits of working at the University for staff from within and outside of the UK including our beautiful campus with its wealth of facilities available to staff, our proximity to the multicultural City of Birmingham and the fantastic transport links to the rest of the country and beyond.


Some current members of our International Staff community have volunteered to act as buddies for new members of staff relocating to the UK for a job here at the University. 

They can share personal experiences and direct you to useful services across the University.

New starters

Information for new starters provided by Human Resources covers useful general information about the University, its structure and governance and information about the practical steps you need to take once you have received an offer of employment including induction processes.

Concierge Service

The University operates in an increasingly global market, and to ensure that we provide an excellent onboarding experience for new staff, we offer a Concierge Service to assist with relocation. Working with Gerson Relocation, our Concierge Service can be tailored to the needs of the individual, supporting relocations, whether they are local or international. New members of staff are able to discuss this during the onboarding process. Visit the Intranet page for further information.
