Opening Minds, Opening Doors

Based in the vibrant city of Leeds, the UK’s largest centre for financial services outside London, our vision is to be acknowledged for our commitment to student success, innovation and enterprise, global reach, and strong local impact.

Our history stretches back almost 200 years, which began with the founding of the Leeds Mechanics Institute in 1824; we are proud of our history and excited about our future.

A big business in our own right, we have around 3,100 staff and more than 25,000 students from 144 countries and territories around the world; we contribute an estimated £520 million to the economy every year. We are proud to have ranked in the Stonewall Top 100 Employer Index for the last three years.

Our aspiration is to help create great graduates, exceptional employees, dynamic citizens and enterprising leaders and we work closely with employers and partners to ensure that our graduates are ready for work, ready for life, and ready to seize the opportunities that lie ahead.

To maintain our success we recruit the best people; those who have got what it takes to make a difference. In return we offer excellent employment benefits, extensive learning and development opportunities and a stimulating and enjoyable working environment.

We welcome applications from all individuals and particularly from black and minority ethnic candidates as members of these groups are currently under-represented at our University. All appointments will be based on merit.
