Why work at LSBU

Thrive in a workplace that embraces who you are

A place to thrive

At LSBU, we know that our diverse staff are our biggest strength. We’re fostering a culture where everyone can be their authentic selves. Where they can thrive as high-performing individuals in an educational Group proud of where and who we are and the communities we’re in.

Equality, Diversity & Inclusion

We are clear that we must be an inclusive and welcoming Group, committed to eliminating all forms of discrimination. We are committed to eliminating discrimination based on age, race, religion/belief, sex, disability, sexual orientation, gender reassignment, marriage/civil partnership, pregnancy/maternity, caring status and social class. This means that we will pro-actively work to eliminate individual, institutional, and systemic inequalities that currently exist within the University and Group. We will strive to influence the wider world and to positively impact on the society around us. We believe that it is not enough just to eliminate discrimination but that we must speak out and act against inequalities wherever and whenever they occur.

We will take guidance from the IHRA definition when investigating incidents of anti-semitism.

Our vision is to transform lives, communities, businesses and society through education and insight.

We will not achieve our vision without being inclusive and while much has been achieved, there is still more to do. We know that with the whole LSBU Group working together, we can achieve this.
