Why choose to work at Middlesex

As part of our staff community, you'll use your expertise, passion, creativity and enterprising spirit to support our 37,000 students around the world. Our staff make sure that our students have the knowledge, confidence and practical opportunities they need to succeed. It's very rewarding work.

Here are some more benefits of working at Middlesex.

State-of-the-art campus

We recently invested £200 million to transform our flagship campus so we have the best facilities in one place.

Our learning and research facilities give you opportunities to broaden your skills and expertise and our generous break-out spaces make room for socialising too.

  • Progressive pay so you earn more

    We have a progressive pay structure which means you are able to earn more every year. We believe in equal pay for equal value too. As soon as you start with us, we'll support you with opportunities to progress and get you a step closer to your dream career.

  • Pioneering approach to well-being

    We take a pro-active approach to your well-being and support you to strike a healthy work-life balance. It’s this approach which lead us to become the first university to be awarded the Mayor for London’s Healthy Workplace Excellence Award.

  • Flexible working arrangements

    We’ll work with you to find out your employment needs - whether that’s an earlier or later start to the day or working from home - we’ll do whatever we can to have you working at your best.

  • Your guaranteed pension

    You will be guaranteed a pension through either the Teachers Pension scheme or the Local Government Pension Scheme depending on your role and our flexible retirement policy means you can start drawing your pension anytime between the ages of 55 and 75.

An inclusive work environment

When you work with us, you become part of an inclusive and progressive community.

We respect, embrace and promote diversity – we believe it makes us better. It is an integral part of who we are and what we stand for and that’s why we are the first university to be awarded the UK Investor in Equality and Diversity (UKIED) Gold Charter Mark.

Support for personal development

At Middlesex, we'll help you to grow both personally and professionally. We value our staff and invest in their development, offering a range of free courses right here on campus.

Spaces to eat, drink and relax

We have a range of affordable cafes and eateries and plenty of shops nearby - like Costcutter and Hendon Bakery - that offer 10% discount to staff and students.

Our campus environment also means we have outdoor spaces - Grove Park, The Paddock and Sunny Hill Park - to take a walk, have a picnic or simply unwind.

Ways to stay healthy and active

As an employee, you can sign-up to our gym at a special staff rate of only £23 a month. You’ll have access to a range of facilities including an Astroturf pitch, floodlit multi-sports courts and even a real tennis court. Join our running club and other team sports plus make the most of lunchtime walks and free swimming at Copthall Leisure Centre.
