    The Faculty of Health, Education and Society offers more than just a learning environment for students – the team is focused on improving the educational chances, health and wellbeing of people living and working across Northamptonshire. Our research aims to address inequalities through innovative interdisciplinary research, education and enterprise to improve the whole population's education, health and wellbeing.

    We pride ourselves on our emphasis on participation and our interprofessional relationships. Our ability to draw on academic expertise from disciplines as diverse as education and psychology, as well as those more traditionally related to health and social care, means that we can consider real-world problems holistically.

    About Us

    Come to the University of Northampton and you will see that we do things a bit differently.

    We are one of the youngest universities in the UK but we are already leading the way in adding value to society, which we call social impact. We have won multiple awards for our work in this area, among others, but what matters the most to us is ensuring that our students and graduates have the opportunity to make their mark on the world too. That's why we were the first university in the UK to be named as a Changemaker Campus in 2012.

    We want to break the mould of what Higher Education can be. This has led us to build a whole new University from the ground up that is designed to reflect the way that students actually learn rather than the way they are expected to learn. Waterside Campus opened in September 2018.

    Our commitment to transforming lives and inspiring change is at the heart of all that we do.

    Right to Work

    All candidates will be asked to provide proof of eligibility to work in the UK at interview. Due to the requirements laid out by UK Visas and Immigration regarding Right to Work in the UK, the University can only accept applications from individuals who currently have a status allowing them to work in the UK for this position.

    Due to this criteria we regret that we are unable to offer sponsorship at this time.


    We welcome applications from underrepresented groups.

    The University of Northampton is committed to providing a vibrant, ethical and sustainable work, study and living environment that values equality, diversity and inclusion.

    This commitment, along with our legal and moral obligations, provides an inclusive environment for staff, students and the public who may be affected by our activities.

    Together @ UON confirms our commitment to equality and inclusion, underpinned by our belief in taking action. We are dedicated to creating an environment that celebrates equality and harnesses the power of diversity.
