Why join Exeter?

If you’re considering applying for a job at Exeter College, it may help to know a bit more about what it’s like to work here, and to understand more about the organisational culture.

People join Exeter College for many different reasons, and if you ask the people who work here why it’s such a great place to work you’ll get any number of positive responses. However, many of them will almost certainly reflect the fact that:

  • we’re friendly, and always aim to treat our employees well, help them develop, and give them a rewarding working life
  • we take pride in what we do, and the difference that it makes
  • people look out for each other
  • we’re open-minded, flexible, and always looking to improve.

Don’t just take our word for it, though, read what some of our staff have to say.

Celebrating diversity

At Exeter College, we recognise that everyone is different. We believe that having people from different backgrounds, with different life experiences and different talents, is fundamental to our success and to making the College an interesting and rewarding place to work.

In practice, this means an active commitment to providing training on diversity and equal opportunities, and flexible working and holiday policies that encourage staff to have a good work-life balance, and which support people to take time out when they need it. We promote an environment free from discrimination, harassment or victimisation, and try to ensure that all staff are offered an equal opportunity to reach their full potential.

In short, we aim to be a place where you will be valued for who you are and what you can offer.
