Join Our Staff

The University Academy of Engineering staff team are a supportive bunch and you can be sure of a very warm welcome when you start working with us

We are part of a Multi Academy Trust, The South Bank Academies Trust. The Trust operates its own payscales which are competitive and in line with inner London weighting.  Additional benefits include healthcare, Sodexo rewards (including discounted supermarket and high street shopping and cinema tickets), and contributory pension schemes for teachers (Teachers Pensions) and support staff (Local Government Pension Scheme). 

As we continue to grow as a school, and our student numbers rise, we are currently having a recruitment drive.
