Built for community
UCEM has a long history and a bright future. We have a clear vision, we are driven by our core purpose, and we have set out an institutional strategy to 2025. At UCEM we are transparent with our staff; every individual joining UCEM will know what their role is and how it contributes to achieving the overall institutional objectives. You and your work will be valued and we want your contribution.
Given we operate in a highly regulated sector, we take compliance with higher education rules and codes of practice seriously. This means systems and processes are an important part of our everyday work because we want every student to succeed. These formal ways of working and clear organisational structure are balanced with the informal and friendly environment in which our employees operate. We have a UK head office in Reading and a small staff team based in Hong Kong. Overall our staff group is circa five hundred individuals and we operate flexible ways of working (office, hybrid, and remote).
UCEM is filled with people who are passionate about their work and who are incredibly supportive to their colleagues. Staff act with integrity and continue to strive for excellence in their everyday work. These all represent our values and we regularly take time to recognise and reward staff for demonstrating these. We know that the people are what makes UCEM a great place to work; we know this because staff keep telling us so. When you join us, we know you will discover this in almost no time!
Finally, we make sure that we take time out to talk to each other and get to know what makes each of us different and interesting. Whether it’s through informal chats with colleagues both in person and online, during Feed Me Fridays, at a social event or other fun activities, we enjoy each other’s company and most importantly, we look after and out for each other.
