Work at Bath Spa University

Our purpose is to challenge our staff and students to realise their talent and thrive.

Our values

At Bath Spa we recognise that equality, diversity and inclusion are essential to building the creative, innovative and nurturing ethos that we pride ourselves on. That’s why Inclusion forms one of our four core cultural values alongside Respect, Collaboration and Sustainability.

Why apply to Bath Spa University?

We are the UK's university of choice for creativity, culture, enterprise and education, and are home to students and staff from over 80 countries. The University is committed to recruiting and retaining the highest quality staff.

We provide an environment that respects and celebrates all members of our community, and is free from discrimination, prejudice, harassment and bullying. So much so, we are proud to have a wide range of staff networks set-up to foster diversity and inclusion here at Bath Spa. 

These include:
  • BathSpa+ (for our LGBTQIA+ Staff) 
  • Disabled Staff Network
  • Women's Staff Network 
  • Neurodiversity Staff Network 
  • Parent and Carers Network 
  • Global Inclusivity Network for staff who identify as Black, Asian, mixed race, or another minoritised ethnicity. 
We also have a Staff Equalities Network for colleagues interested in activism and enacting change at a grassroots level.

These are some of the fab reasons why 82% of our staff said they would recommend us to a friend as a good employer in the last staff survey.

We work hard, but we also know you have a family, friends, hobbies, and a life outside the office. That’s why we offer a great benefits package, not just a competitive salary.

41 days holiday

This includes bank holidays and University closure days. Everyone needs a healthy, happy, and productive life. This means you'll need time to rest and recover.

Generous pension plans

We've got you covered for the future. Work in the comfort of knowing that all your hard work is not only paying off now but also setting you up for the future.

Flexible working

We know life is busy so, where we can, we support flexible working to ensure our teams are happy, productive and listened to.

Onsite nursery

Reduce the morning stress by dropping the kids off at the onsite nursery. We've got you and your family covered.

Employee assistance programme

We've teamed up with Telus Health to provide you with extra support when needed. Whether it is health, family, money, work or yourself, Telus Health is only a phone call away.

A team that cares

You’ll be joining a team of smart, capable, helpful people that want you to win, our students to win and our University and community to grow. Not to mention our team of care dogs who are on hand to put a smile on your face if needed.
