The basic working week is of 38.5 hours which includes 36.5hours + 2 hours contracted overtime; these hours will be worked on a rotating shift basis cover of 24/7, 365 days of the year and attracts 15% shift allowance; at times during staff shortages the postholder will be required to work with other Campus teams and cover different shifts.

The appointment will be made subject to an Enhanced Disclosure & Barring Service (DBS) clearance being obtained.

We aim to be an inclusive university, where difference is celebrated, respected and encouraged.

We have made a positive commitment towards gender equality and intersectionality receiving a Bronze Athena SWAN award, and we are actively working towards a Silver award. We are a family-friendly University, with an increasingly agile workforce, we are open to flexible working arrangements. We’re also proud to be a disability confident employer and are happy to discuss any reasonable adjustments you may require.
