Nottingham Trent University is where women work

Nottingham Trent University has 25,690 students studying full and part-time for undergraduate and postgraduate qualifications. They are one of the UK’s most successful universities for graduate employment and are investing £130m into the University campuses over the next six years, guaranteeing an inspiring working environment for students and staff.

Diversity and inclusion

NTU welcomes and values diversity. To enable the University to meet its equality and diversity commitments, its recruitment and selection procedures have been designed to encourage all suitably qualified present and potential employees to apply for employment opportunities at NTU and be fairly and equitably treated throughout the application process.

As part of NTU's commitment to diversity and inclusion, the Women’s Staff Network was formed by a group of like-minded women, underpinned by a shared passion for raising the profile of women at NTU, female empowerment, and creating a supportive, aspirational, and motivational space for female staff at all stages of their careers. 

A call for interest was circulated by the Vice-Chancellor on International Women’s Day 2016 which received a very positive response, and from there the Network has evolved - led by its members and supported by the Equality, Diversity and Inclusion Team. A Steering Group has also now been established, and the Network has developed four special interest groups under the following themes: personal development, career progression, managing work-life balance, and social and activity networks.

Impacting global sustainability

NTU is one of the most sustainable universities in the world and is committed to creating an international experience for staff and students alike.
