Universities are about enhancing life choices and transforming lives. We pride ourselves on recruiting students from diverse backgrounds and enabling them to shape their learning experience to suit their lifestyles and aspirations. We encourage our students to dare to be different, to aim to achieve great things and support them through their journey, providing an excellent learning experience.

Staffordshire University is in the midst of exciting times. In a landscape of seismic change in Higher Education, we have a new strategy and we are reshaping the way we work, to ensure that we are fit for the future and able to seize emerging opportunities and deal with any challenges. This has engendered an optimism and energy amongst our staff and students who are playing a central role in shaping our future.

One of our values is to be ‘brilliant and friendly’ and that is what our staff and students are. The Students’ Union have driven our value of ‘proud to be Staffs’ and this set the tone for how we work at Staffordshire University.

We have made marked improvements in our performance against relevant benchmarks and in external league tables and we are pleased that we are beginning to see a step change. The recent DLHE results place us at No.2 in England for student employability, excluding specialist institution.

Our refurbishments of new buildings on our Stoke campus and our Centres of Excellence in Stafford and Shrewsbury continue to be unveiled and we are delighted to see the emerging transformation of our facilities.

We are a University that is both of and for our City and region, maximising the impact of our presence in Stoke and Staffordshire. Currently Stoke-on-Trent is the European City of Sport and we are an integral part of this achievement and activity. We are also playing a key role in the bid to become the City of Culture in 2021.

We are seeking a dynamic leader to join our newly restructured academic schools.

Staffordshire University is an equal opportunities employer.
