Cyprus Health and Social Sciences University is committed to equality of opportunity, supports and encourages under-represented groups and values diversity. We have a formal Equal Opportunities Policy, a Combined Equality Scheme which outlines how the policy is implemented and Diversity Networks for Women, Black and Minority Ethnic, Disabled and Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender staff.

Employment with the University and progression within employment will be determined only by personal merit. We do this by applying criteria which are related to the duties and conditions of each particular post and the needs of the institution concerned.

Subject to the law, no applicant for a staff appointment or member of staff will be treated less favorably than another on the grounds of sex, gender reassignment, marital/civil partnership or parental status, race, ethnic or national origin, color, disability, sexual orientation, religion, or age. Ability to perform the job will be the primary consideration.

We will consider applications for employment on a part-time or other flexible working basis, even where a position is advertised as full-time unless there are operational or other objective reasons why it is not possible to do so.

Cyprus Health and Social Sciences University also has a Rehabilitation of Offenders Policy which explains that we welcome applications from a wide range of candidates and that having a criminal record will not necessarily prevent you from working with us. This will depend on the nature of the position and the circumstances and background of your offenses.

A recruitment complaints procedure is available. Please contact us .
