When you join Newcastle University, you don’t just join an organisation – you join a community.

Our jobs are a huge part of our lives, and we should love what we do and where we work.

We put a lot of effort not only into creating a true community at Newcastle University but also into giving back to the community around us.

Our community doesn’t just include our colleagues. As well as creating a supportive, friendly and inclusive work environment, we care about our community as a city and as a region. We’re committed to giving back to our region’s many important communities; in fact, it’s written into our values.

Our values are core to our sense of community, and we know that the things we have in common, as well as our diversity, unites us.

Working at Newcastle University

A sense of community and fulfilment is important to any career, and we strive to ensure all our people know they are part of something bigger.

We aren’t just an employer for academics. We hire talented people across a vast range of roles – some of our current employees were surprised at the range of jobs available!

One of the many benefits our people love about working here is the atmosphere, community spirit and camaraderie. Find out more about what makes Newcastle University a great place to work in our video.

A welcoming city

It’s well established that Newcastle is one of the friendliest and most welcoming cities in the UK, but you don’t understand just how true this is until you’re here.

Whether you’re moving from across the country, around the world or just from the other side of the city, you’ll be welcomed with open arms.

Living by our values

Our values drive everything we do and it truly contributes to the community spirit at the university.

Giving back to the region is the driving force behind the university’s goals and our people’s motivation.
