Sheffield Hallam is one of the largest universities in the UK, with an excellent track record and an exciting future. Over the last two years we’ve developed and implemented our Creating Knowledge Implementation Plan, strengthening the research culture, enhancing support for researchers and adopting a strategic approach to funding applications. We’ve seen significant funding successes and we’re well-placed to improve on our REF2014 performance in REF2021.

If you are excited by our vision and have the passion and determination to make a real difference to the University, its students and its region, we want to hear from you.
