Why are we a ‘social’ enterprise?

“Social enterprises are businesses that trade to tackle social problems, improve communities, people’s life chances, or the environment. They make their money from selling goods and services in the open market, but they reinvest their profits back into the business or the local community.”

Global Academy Jobs are changing the way universities recruit researchers and academics to drive research achievements and develop intellectual and professional capabilities in the academy. Until recently top-tier universities felt little need to advertise job vacancies. Now they now face fierce international competition to recruit the best academic and research talent, and are forced to invest heavily in recruitment advertising to be sure of attracting the best applicants from around the world.

At the same time early international experience is recognised as essential to a successful research career. The world’s big problems; food security, climate change, and infectious disease control, will never be solved by researchers working in one lab, or even one country. International research collaboration is essential and early international experience gives researchers the skills they need to collaborate effectively across regions and cultures.

Global Academy Jobs is now one of the largest online academic jobs boards. Our websites, regular emails and international academic jobs board reach over 100,000 academics and researchers around the world each week and we share revenue with our university alliance partners.

We work with universities across the world; continents, countries and universities share equal status both on our website and within our network. We are as proud to be working with some of the world’s newest universities as with the older, established centres of Higher Education. Our member universities understand how we help them cut their recruitment advertising costs, build their international reputation and attract the best international research and academic candidates wherever they are in the world.

Knowing that our work contributes to building better international research energizes the team running GAJobs from Oxford UK, and working with inspiring partners around the world makes it all worthwhile.

That’s why we are a ‘social’ enterprise

Can you work internationally if you only speak English?

Don’t assume that if you only speak English, you are always at a disadvantage in the academic job market. Secondly, if you speak French, German, Spanish or Mandarin (or all of the above) as first…
