What is it like to work here?

In fact, we’re the UK’s only university to be set in a national park. Alongside Carlisle and the internationally renowned Lake District, historic Lancaster and buzzing London all bring unique and fantastic opportunities for you to get involved, feel and live the place and be part of a really great atmosphere.

We believe the best way to stop silos forming and misunderstandings happening is by picking up the phone or having a meeting, rather than hiding from issues. The university is sufficiently small that you can rapidly get to know people from all areas and although we strongly promote good practice project and service management, the informal conversation can be the best way of gaining agreement!

Equality and Diversity

72, felt tip pensWe take pride in being a community of equals where colleagues and students support and learn from one another, creating an enriching environment.

The University is committed to nurturing an environment where its employees, students and visitors are treated fairly and with respect at all times. We recognise that if we provide a fully inclusive working and studying environment, we will enable everyone to perform to the best of their ability.
