Future ways of working

UCEM is a flexible employer and considers flexibility a valuable employee benefit, especially in this post-pandemic world of work. The flexibility we offer includes the place of work which is designated for each job role; roles have been designated as either Horizons based*, Split or Remote and this will be made clear within job specifications. At the same time as exploring our current job vacancies, please do take a look at our Future Ways of Working principles document which provides more information on the place of work options, as well as explaining how we will make flexible working successful at UCEM. *Please note that the majority of Horizons-based roles will only require a 60% attendance at the office (not 100%).

Policies and information

As part of the recruitment and selection process we collect and process personal data relating to enquirers and job applicants. We are committed to being transparent about how we collect and use personal data; please see our Privacy Notice for job applicants for details.

We also wish to be transparent about where UCEM job roles are located and the conditions around right to work; full details can be found within our Overseas Working – Place of Work Policy. UCEM job roles must be carried out in the country in which they are based, which is currently the United Kingdom or Hong Kong.

Equality Diversity and Inclusion

Here at UCEM we champion Equality, Diversity and Inclusion in our workforce. We began our EDI journey in Autumn 2021 by forming an EDI Staff Working Group, which meets regularly to plan and implement changes and developments that will bring us closer to our goal of having a more diverse and inclusive workforce. We do not have a “tick-box mentality” but instead are committed to embedding real and lasting change within our institution. As an online education provider for the Built Environment we want our staff to be representative of the diverse and global student body that we serve.

Employee Referral Bonus Scheme

UCEM operates an Employee Referral Bonus Scheme which enables existing employees to receive an introduction bonus where they introduce a friend, family member, or other personal contact as a job applicant and the referred person is then subsequently recruited and employed as a result of that introduction. If you are applying for a role with UCEM and have been introduced by an existing employee, please ensure that you read carefully, and follow the rules of the scheme in order for the bonus to apply.

Recruitment policies

UCEM undertakes thorough pre-employment screening as part of its recruitment process. Given we have contracts with Government offices, we make sure our checks comply with the Baseline Personnel Security Standard (BPSS). Checks will include identity, right to work, basic disclosure criminal record check, and three years of employment history.

Overseas working and place of work


We request that recruitment agencies do not submit CVs for job vacancies, unless specifically requested to do so by the HR team. UCEM will only accept agency CVs where terms and conditions of contract have been previously negotiated and agreed with the HR team.

Speculative enquiries

UCEM will advertise all job opportunities on this website and does not retain speculative CVs on file.
