Staffordshire University is on a journey to become the foremost modern higher education institution in the UK, with an international reputation for excellence, and we are looking for inspirational and effective people to take us to the next stage.

In 2018 we broke into the World University rankings for the first time and were named as a top 50 UK university by the Guardian. The quality of our student experience has placed us in the top 10 for teaching quality in the Sunday Times Good University Guide 2018 and in 2019 we achieved a Gold rating in the Teaching Excellence Framework.

Many of our students come from areas with low rates of participation in higher education and we continually strive to ensure the courses we offer meet the needs of people and employers. We are expanding our non-traditional, flexible study options, particularly in apprenticeships serving the public sector.

We pride ourselves on our work with partners at every level. We are a university that is both of and for our city and region, maximising the impact of our presence in Stoke and Staffordshire. With our focus on applied learning and research, we work with partners in industry and business across all of our activities.

As part of our regional role as an anchor institution, Staffordshire University has secured funding from European Structural and Investment Fund (ESIF) to lead and deliver Staffordshire University’s work-based learning activity in facilitating the creation and identification of placement opportunities for students, developing work-based learning for students as part of their degree programme. The successful candidate will provide comprehensive support to the delivery of a University-wide strategy to increase engagement in work-based learning and the wider activity of placement activities within the University. 

In return for your dedication we have a competitive benefits package available: 

  • Competitive incremental rates of Pay
  • 32 days Annual Leave plus 11 days Bank Holiday and Discretionary days
  • Excellent Pension Scheme
  • Access to continued professional and personal development
  • An opportunity to become part of the wider University community
  • Access to an Employee Assistance Programme
  • Discounted Health & Fitness Facilities on site at the Stoke Campus
  • Discounted Travel by Rail or Bus, with the option of season tickets loans

This role is part-financed by the European Structural and Investment Fund (ESIF) and is a fixed term contract until October 2023.

We are a university of and for our community: local, national and global. If you share our values and have the skills to deliver our vision, we want to hear from you.
