Applying from Overseas
Non UK/EEA Applications
The University of Greenwich is an international employer and believes that equality of opportunity is key to achieving its mission of providing high quality education, research and enterprise for international, national, regional and local communities.
There is a strictly limited number of Tier 2 sponsorships allocated to the University under the United Kingdom Border Agency points based system. The small allocation of sponsorships we have will be mainly limited to use in making appointments to lecturing and research positions. It is not possible for the University to guarantee to sponsor a successful non UK/EEA candidate for any post. As such cases arise we will explore, with the person concerned, how the matter of their eligibility to work in the United Kingdom is to be addressed to achieve their employment.
As an employer we are required to recruit from within the resident labour market whenever possible. A vacancy that is posted with a closing date of two weeks from it first appearing indicates that the vacancy is likely to attract sufficient applicants amongst the UK/EEA resident labour market to ensure that the vacancy can be filled.
