Thinking of Leaving Teaching?
Jobs in Universities

Job Search – Jobs in Universities and FE Colleges

One of the best places to look for jobs in universities, research organisations, FE colleges and charities is jobs.ac.uk. Most of the interviews I had from 2017-2019 were through that site.

jobs.ac.uk-logo-new

It allows you to do a quick search for jobs by keywords and location. If you wish, you can go straight to the Professional / managerial / Support Services category and look for jobs in specific areas such as Administrative, Library Services, IT, Student Services and many more. A teacher with some management experience will satisfy many of the ‘essential experience’ criteria in the Person Specifications.

It also allows you to set up email alerts for specific job searches.
