Working at Lancaster

Lancaster is proud of its 2018 staff survey results, with 91% of staff stating that the University is a good place to work. We think this cements our position as an employer of choice, regionally, national and internationally.

The Lancaster University campus is set in 360 acres of parkland with views of the lake district and coast. Since 2003 we have invested in excess of £500m in new college residential and social facilities, new and refurbished teaching spaces, a new sports centre and new research facilities.

The University was named University of the Year 2018 and International University of the Year 2020 by the Times and the Sunday Times.

Our performance in the Research Excellence Framework (2014) has placed us amongst the top universities in the UK, and this reflects our increasing portfolio of regional, national and international research partnerships, and our outstanding record for teaching quality. Our renowned collegiate system also encourages interactions between staff and students and provides the opportunity to build up interdisciplinary work. Our REF result indicates that there is truly something special about Lancaster.

The University aims to engage with Equality, Diversity and Inclusion (EDI) issues to better understand the lived experiences of our staff, students, visitors and wider university community and to understand how we are doing in creating a fairer and more inclusive University. We have several EDI–related networks and associations at Lancaster University for staff and students. If you are interested in joining one or more networks, please check the EDI website here.

We also offer our staff a comprehensive set of benefits.
