About Us

jobs.ac.uk is the global jobs board for academic, science and research careers - attracting over 1.5 million jobseekers each month and advertising over 4,000 job opportunities at any one time.

Launched in January 1998 by the University of Warwick, jobs.ac.uk was created to provide a more cost effective recruitment advertising service for academic, research, science and related positions.

The website was the idea of Alex Sproat, the former Deputy Director of Personnel at the University of Warwick, who became concerned with how expensive and ineffective traditional recruitment channels were becoming. jobs.ac.uk was created in conjunction with the Universities Advertising Group - a consortium of 37 UK institutions responsible for the procurement of cost effective recruitment advertising to the higher education sector.

jobs.ac.uk has continued to grow internationally and today advertises vacancies for over 7,282 organisations worldwide including universities, UK FE colleges/ schools, NHS trusts and hospitals, government departments, public sector research institutes, museums, Students Unions, local authorities/councils, charities and commercial organisations.
