Inspiring and supporting our people

Working environment

Foster an innovative, inspiring and supportive workplace where the most talented and diverse staff globally, nationally and locally can reach their full potential.


Attracting and supporting a diverse community of people with great potential in all aspects of what we do will make us a global leader.

Collaboration and partnership

Sustain our strong community of scholars and professional services staff, who collaborate to find solutions to local and global problems.


Sharing knowledge and thought leads to great things.


Create an adaptable and resilient community in which people can adopt the approach to work that best suits their own individual needs and those of the institution.


The wellbeing of all our staff creates resilience and adaptability, and is fundamental to our shared success.

Destination of choice

Build on the radical overhaul of our University promotions process, success of the recently-established Bristol Institute for Learning and Teaching (BILT), and development support for early career researchers, to enhance our reputation as a destination of choice for highly-talented academics.


We want the next generation of world-leading higher education innovators to flourish within our supportive and rewarding environment.
