    At the University of Exeter, we're embarking on an exciting journey of digital transformation that will reshape the way we educate, research, and collaborate. Our commitment to embracing cutting-edge digital technologies and fostering digital skills development is at the heart of our mission. We are dedicated to working with partners who share our values to enhance our education, research, and partnerships while meeting the evolving needs of our students and colleagues across our campuses.

    We work in an agile way and have organised the team into chapters (groups of people with the same skill sets) and squads (made up of people from the chapters who can work autonomously and to their own goals). We want to test and champion new working models in our squads that push the boundaries of inclusivity, location, and flexibility. Our users will be at the heart of everything we do and we'll develop new ways to deliver value, make things easier and generate new income along the way.

  • Simplifying and enhancing the end-to-end digital experience, augmented with physical elements.
