This is a challenging but rewarding role in a fast paced environment.

As well as a competitive salary, you will join an inclusive and supportive culture based across two campuses.  We work within a generous agile working policy; requiring you to work 60% of your time on campus and the remainder from home.    

We offer a large range of benefits including a generous pension scheme, health cash plan, discounts on bus and rail fare as well as car hire.     

For those candidates with family, our maternity, paternity, shared parental leave and adoption policies offer enhanced pay.  We also have a ‘Good’ ofsted rated on-site nursery available to pay via salary deduction and salary sacrifice.  

Our on-site gym within City Space, gives our staff the opportunity to benefit from discounted rates and use of the latest equipment and classes.  

Finally, we also have an amazing selection of staff networks  which support staff in various areas; LGBTQ+, Family, Women, Disability, BAME, Carers and more.  They are chaired and facilitated by staff and are both a supportive mechanism and platform for change within the University.  The University recently implemented the Family network proposal for additional paid leave for parents of Neonatal/Premature babies.
