Our commitment to the Armed Forces Covenant
As a signatory of the Armed Forces Covenant Brunel has fully committed to upholding a promise from the nation that those who serve or have served in the armed forces, and their families, are treated fairly. Alongside this, Brunel was awarded a Silver Employer Recognition Scheme award in November 2016. The Scheme encourages employers to support Defence and inspire others to do the same.
In support of this Brunel currently Works with the Career Transition Partnership to actively promote relevant job vacancies to Service personnel leaving the Armed Forces. We celebrate and publicise Armed Forces Day across campus. Brunel also provide a range of opportunities for wounded, injured and sick military personnel and veterans to prepare for their competitive endeavours at the Invictus Games through use of our sports facilities and adapted on-campus accommodation.
Brunel’s Armed Forces Covenant Champion has recently established an Armed Forces Network on campus. This brings people with shared backgrounds and experiences together to meet, talk and create an informal community. The membership extends to Reservists and Veterans, (from both the staff and student communities across all the Services), students currently serving in the Armed Forces, Adult Cadet Instructors and military spouses.
Awarded our Royal Charter in 1966 Brunel University London has conceived a brand of education and research which is geared towards the needs of industry and, echoing the spirit and vision of our namesake Isambard Kingdom Brunel, we have done so with flair and rigour. Our aim is to equip students for the world of work and to address society’s challenges on a global scale.
Our staff members are integral to our reputation and our students' university experience. We offer a variety of benefits, activities and development opportunities to ensure you excel in your role and enjoy your time working with us.
We believe our vibrant and attractive campus environment, excellent benefits, development opportunities, and campus activities, provide a great place to work and nurture a desired work/life balance.
We are located in Uxbridge, West London which is easily commutable from London, Heathrow and the surrounding areas with tube, train and bus links as well as being easily accessed by car via the M4, M40, and M25.
