This helps us to deliver the University’s strategic goal of enhancing the vitality of the region’s economy.

We are now looking for someone to join us to help undertake an evaluation of this activity so the University can fully understand what works and how our role remains relevant, meaningful, and continues to contribute to the improvement of the economy in which we operate.

  • improve your workplace skills
  • advance your leadership skills
  • build your confidence
  • provide you with employment experience.

Please refer to the job description and person specification when completing your application to demonstrate how you meet the requirements for the role. 

Applications from job seekers who require Tier 2 sponsorship to work in the UK are welcome and will be considered alongside all other applications. However, non-European Economic Area (EEA) candidates may not be appointed to a post if a suitably qualified, experienced and skilled EEA candidate is available to take up the post as the University is unlikely, in these circumstances, to satisfy the Resident Labour Market Test.

UK Visas and Immigration, part of the Home Office, requires employers to complete this test to show that no suitably qualified EEA or EU worker can fill the post.

For further information please visit the UK Visas and Immigration website.

Don’t forget, you can get support from the NTU Employability Team for all stages of the recruitment process. Visit their website or email for more information.
