This is an exciting chance to be part of a progressive and cutting-edge University in a beautiful location, where you can really make a difference. The University of Plymouth is a great place to work, with excellent opportunities for career development and progression for staff, as well as striving to put students at the heart of everything we do.
Our Student Services Department has been reshaped over the past three years which has seen the introduction of the Student Conduct Office and our Student Hub. We recognise that life for our students is a transformative and exciting time but transitioning to higher education can sometimes be a challenge. We have been proactive and transformational in the work we have been doing in prevention of sexual violence and the promotion of healthy relationships.
The University is proud to be the lead in the Government’s Safer Streets 4 project for the Plymouth community, which aims to tackle neighbourhood crime, anti-social behaviour and Violence Against Women and Girls (VAWG) by working with a number of local organisations and charities. National data shows that Plymouth is viewed among the safest cities in the country, and this bid – led by Student Services – will help to maintain its position and help our students and the wider city feel safer.
