Who we are

We’re passionate about supporting and developing the needs of all our colleagues, providing learning and development opportunities for the organisation, team and individual. We deliver open events, online resources and support bespoke requests that can help you develop your skills and reach your full potential.

Explore the possibilities

There are so many opportunities at NTU to develop yourself, your career, impact people’s lives, be part of and create change, innovate and deliver service excellence. We want to give you the opportunities to stretch yourself, to explore what you’re capable of. If your ideas are big and bold enough and will make an impact, then we’ll back you all the way. In short, we want to empower great ideas and we want you to work with us, a partner, to achieve that goal.

At NTU when we set out to do something we do it

We are a highly successful university however you measure us; from student satisfaction to research, from awards to investment. We also recognise we’re not the finished article. That whilst we have achieved so much there’s still lots to do to make the impact we want in the world and for our people. But we’re determined to get there. At NTU, we’ve been successful because we have strong leadership, because we’re ambitious but also because we work together and deliver what we say.

Respect at NTU
NTU is committed to sustaining a highly effective learning environment for our students and staff characterised by fairness, equality of opportunity, and the valuing of diversity. Principles of dignity and respect underpin all that we do, and the University has very clear expectations around how all members of its community treat – and are treated by – others.

Bold in diversity, we reward success and empower our people

We are a highly inclusive and collaborative organisation. We seek diversity of people and diversity in thinking. We want people to fully and actively contribute and collaborate across the whole organisation.  Our four colleague networks, Women’s Network, Race, Ethnicity and Cultural Heritage (REACH) Network, LGBT+ Network and Disabled Employees Network (DEN) provide an empowered network of voices that make a significant contribution to our work and culture.

At NTU we recognise, reward and develop the individual talent of people. We break the mould of many universities through providing all employees with an opportunity to be awarded a bonus for exceptional performance and contribution. This approach fairly recognises and rewards achievement in a way that is clear, transparent and consistent across all employees. This empowers people to maximise their potential and achieve success here at NTU.

We don’t just support talent, we recognise how to inclusively develop it through the opportunities of sponsoring empowering programmes such as Aurora and Calibre.
