York St John is an ambitious, modern university at the heart of historic York and there has never been a more exciting time to join us.

Significant investment in our campus and facilities, the development of forward-thinking new partnerships and an enhanced range of contemporary courses have helped make us the fastest growing University in the U.K. over the past two years.  

Now we are building on that achievement, developing a new Strategy for the next decade, emphasising our commitment to widening opportunity through the power of education and contributing our talents to creating a fairer world, and a more prosperous region.  We are putting inspirational learning and impactful research at the heart of this strategy, recognising our academic expertise as our greatest asset and investing in enabling this expertise to thrive.

As a Stonewall Top 100 employer and holder of the Social Enterprise Gold Mark for Responsible Business Practice, our strength lies in the supportive, inclusive network that exists within our team: renowned for our friendly, progressive environment, we will nurture your potential so that you can accomplish your ambitions. 

All of this takes place at the heart of beautiful York, recently named by the Sunday Times as the best U.K. city to grow up in because of the quality of education, culture and community spirit that we form part of.

To drive forward our strategic commitment to impactful research, we have opened a new and dedicated support office, the Research Office, and are now recruiting for someone to work with the academic community on the preparation of external funding bids and the collation of research outputs.

The successful candidate will have a good working knowledge of funding schemes that support academic research and first-hand experience of the requirements of the Research Excellence Framework.  They should also have sophisticated IT skills suited to system and process development, and should be able to demonstrate autonomy and commitment to high quality service delivery.

If you would like to shape the story of a 175 year old institution with a fantastic future, we would love to hear from you.

Any informal enquiries should be addressed to Elizabeth Goodwin-Andersson (e.goodwinandersson@yorksj.ac.uk) in the first instance.
