Working at Lancaster

Lancaster is proud of its 2016 staff survey results, with an overall response rate of 73%. 92% said that the University was a good place to work in comparison to the sector average of 88%. 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 has been named University of the Year 2018 by the Times and the Sunday Times, and has been awarded Gold in the UK government’s Teaching Excellence Framework (TEF), the highest possible ranking.

Our performance in the most recent 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 combined with our TEF gold indicates that there is truly something special about Lancaster.

We also offer our staff a comprehensive set of benefits.
