As one of the UK’s leading and world top 100 universities, we are proud of our people, because they are at the heart of our globally outstanding institution, which is a key part of our local community. We inspire our people to do extraordinary things and we invite you to join our fantastic team.
Set within the historically rich City of Durham in the Northeast of England, which is home to a UNESCO World Heritage Site, this is an undeniably beautiful place in which to base your work-life balance.
A globally outstanding centre of teaching and research excellence, a collegiate community of extraordinary people, a unique and historic setting – Durham is a university like no other.
Across the University, we have a huge variety of roles and responsibilities, which together make us one large and successful community. Whether you are at the very start, middle or end of your career, there is a role for you. We believe everyone has their own unique skills to offer.
Equality, Diversity and Inclusion
At the University we promote and actively champion equality, diversity and inclusion. It is crucial that everyone can be themselves and can flourish in an environment where everyone respects each other and is treated fairly. We want our people and wider community to feel happy, secure and proud to be a part of Durham. We are looking for the same values in you.
Durham University’s Athena Swan institutional award recognises and celebrates good practice in recruiting and supporting the development of women and for providing flexible working practices for all. We have also signed up to the Race Equality Charter, a national framework for improving the representation, progression and success of minority ethnic staff and students within higher education.
As a DU employee you will be able to join our vibrant staff network communities such as the
- Black, Asian and Minority Ethnic (BAME) Network
- Disability Network
- First Generation Staff Network
- Mothers and Mothers-to-be Support (MAMS)
- Women@DU Network
Durham University understands the commitment and sacrifices our Armed Forces and their families make for the sake of our nation. We respect that, we are grateful for that and we are unequivocally committed to supporting the entire Armed Forces community. As an employer, we work to attract and retain former Regular serving personnel, encourage Reserve activity and actively support military spouses, Reservists, Veteran employees and their families. This is a lasting commitment to acknowledge and understand those who serve or who have served in the Armed Forces, and their families. Our Human Resources policies are designed to further engender support and understanding across our organisation to achieve respect and fairness for all from the Armed Forces community. We are proud of the pledge we have made to the Armed Forces Covenant.
We welcome and encourage applications from members of groups who are under-represented in our workforce including people with disabilities, women and black, Asian and minority ethnic communities.
By stimulating an instinct to challenge, encouraging innovative thinking and taking our responsibilities seriously, we foster a culture that inspires the extraordinary.
Always curious: we challenge ourselves and each other to answer the big questions and create a positive impact in the world.
From creative teaching practices and cutting-edge research to new ways of working, innovation is at the heart of what we do.
We take our duties as a centre of learning, neighbour and employer seriously, embracing all of our different communities and celebrating the differences that make us stronger together.
We create the opportunities, support and freedom for everyone at Durham to become the best they can be now, and for the future.
