Why work at Birmingham City University?

We have a distinctive focus on education and research for professional and creative practice.
We have a wide collaboration with business, industry and the public services.
We're one of the three long-standing universities in the city of Birmingham and the West Midlands.

The University is in an exciting phase of its development. Our mission is to establish a strong position as an exemplar for engagement with employers and the community and become a university of choice for its many client groups – at a time when the market is expected to become increasingly competitive. We have re-launched (from our former title of UCE Birmingham) with a new corporate identity and are now developing and implementing a longer term brand strategy.

The University is a highly active institution with ambitions to be fully recognised for its activities and achievements, both now and in the future. We are ultimately seeking to change both our position and reputation, underpinned by transformation of our core business. Engaging more effectively with key stakeholders, partners and people of influence will be essential in building up reputation and increasing word-of-mouth referral.
