We offer more than a workplace

When you join us at Durham University, you’ll find a community to call home.

We know relocating can be daunting. That’s why we start supporting you from the moment you decide to join us. We’re happy to chat about any relocation requirements you and your loved ones (including pets!) might have and talk through what level of support you feel like you’ll need. Then, we’ll work with you to make sure everything’s covered before you arrive.
