Working at Portsmouth
Finding a vacancy
On our job search page you'll find 2 types of vacancies – external and internal.
Please note, if you try to apply for the wrong type of vacancy, your application will be automatically rejected – so make sure you're searching in the right section before you start your application.
Refining your search
You can refine the terms of your search – from the department you want to work in, to your expected pay grade or working hours – using the menu on the left-hand side of the vacancies search page.
We add new job adverts all the time, so it's worth visiting job search pages regularly. Or you can sign up to receive vacancy alerts that match your criteria, so you'll never miss a new job posting.
Look for the blue 'vacancy alert' icon at the bottom of the page, where you can specify the type of roles you'd like to hear about.
We are at an exciting stage in our development, having just defined a new vision that maps out our ambitions as a leading UK university. Naturally, we need talented people who can help us realise those ambitions.
Starting your application
To apply for a role, register your details on our job search pages.
Signing up is quick and simple, and your details will only be seen by the HR team and the line manager responsible for the vacancy you've applied for.
