We are a leader in gender equality and diversity, and are one of the UK’s most successful universities in the Athena SWAN initiative which promotes gender equality and career progression. The School of Nursing and Midwifery is one of a very few Nursing and Midwifery Schools in the country to be awarded a Silver Athena SWAN Award, an accolade which they achieved in 2012 in recognition of good practice in recruiting, retaining and promoting women in Science and higher education.

The University is committed to equality of opportunity and welcomes applications from all.
However, our employment monitoring data tells us that individuals from Black, Asian and Minority Ethnic (BAME) communities, people with a disability and those who identify as LGBT+ are currently under-represented at the University. As such, we particularly welcome applications from these individuals. Also Protestants are currently under-represented in this category of work. As such, we particularly welcome applications from these individuals.
As you may be aware, Queen’s is recognised as one of the most diverse organisations in Northern Ireland. We are committed to ensuring our workplace is a safe, welcoming and inclusive place to work, which is why we subscribe to Equality Charter Marks such as Stonewall Workplace Equality Index, Diversity Charter Mark NI and Athena SWAN.
It is also why we have established award winning Staff Networks such as PRISM and iRise. These networks provide an opportunity for staff to meet in a friendly, informal way to support each other.
