Sheffield A remarkable place to work Our people and their collective talent are what make Sheffield such a special place to live and work. We’re a diverse community that shares values, purpose and identity. We’re committed to changing the world for the better, through the power and application of ideas and knowledge. We’ll encourage you to pursue the extraordinary. To do this, we want you to be healthy, happy, engaged, and to feel you belong. We build teams of people from different backgrounds whose talent and contributions complement each other to the greatest effect. We believe diversity in all its forms delivers greater impact. We want to hear from people who are as committed as we are to putting diversity, inclusion and belonging into practice to make the most significant contribution we can to addressing the great challenges of the century. We make sure to reward and recognise the contributions, values and behaviours that align with those of the University.

Our Research and its Impact With over 115 years experience as a leading global university, we have a history of changing the world for the better. From the first documented use of penicillin as a therapy in 1930, a drug that has gone on to save more than 82 million lives worldwide, to building Europe’s largest research-led manufacturing cluster, home to Rolls-Royce, Boeing and McLaren Automotive, our inventive spirit, and top quality research environment is what sets Sheffield apart. Put simply, our research changes lives and advances our understanding of what it means to be human. We work with other leading universities, governments and multinational companies to tackle the biggest challenges facing the world today. We’re focused on the biggest issues in climate, energy, health and social justice. We’re also protecting and promoting the arts, culture and heritage. Our flagship research institutes bring together experts from a range of disciplines to understand and tackle challenges related to food sustainability, energy, healthy lifespans and neuroscience. We’re continuing to develop new interdisciplinary strengths in globally significant areas including energy and the environment, healthcare across the disciplines and digital technologies.

Our Education and Student Experience Sheffield’s world-shaping research feeds into our life-altering education - it’s one of our core values. Our academics are genuine experts. Our students learn at the leading edge of discovery from researchers who are tackling some of today’s biggest global challenges. We teach in creative and innovative ways to provide a stimulating and inspiring learning environment. We don’t see teaching as a one-way process. We see it as students and academics working together in a supportive, collegial atmosphere. We challenge our students to excel. And we expect them to challenge us too. Sheffield is one of the top ten universities targeted by employers according to the High Fliers report 2022. We prepare our students for the future from day one. We help them explore all their options including employment, entrepreneurship and further study. They have opportunities to meet regional, national and international employers in all sectors. We also make connections with our successful alumni who can offer advice and support. The majority of our courses give the chance to undertake a placement year as part of a degree. It’s a way of helping our students stand out from the crowd and develop the confidence and skills for graduate employment.

The student experience at Sheffield is unrivalled. Our Students’ Union has won the Whatuni Student Choice Award for Best Students’ Union for five consecutive years. Committed to sustainability, inclusion and equality, it’s dedicated to amplifying the student voice and making a positive change on campus. There are also over 400 societies and sports clubs to join.
