    I am thinking of getting into a college in my hometown that has a partnership with Staffordshire University, and this is for several reasons the only choice that i have.

    Now according to google this university has a "low" ranking, being around #1600 worldwide.

    How much does the university's rank that you attented, matter on landing a job in this field?

    It depends on a variety of things. What field are you looking to go into? And depending on that field, a relevant degree from an accredited university will normally be enough. Obviously a higher degree would be better, but if you are up against a candidate with a First from Oxbridge in a relevant subject, against your First from this college, there may be slight favouritism.
