Working at Bucks

We are a modern university, with a proud 126-year history of transforming our students’ lives, by creating a vibrant, inclusive community that inspires learning through employment-focused and skills-based teaching and applied research.

Bucks New University is a great place to work and study. We have a distinctive high-quality educational offer coupled with well-developed regional, national and international partnerships.  We have an advantageous geographic footprint. Our High Wycombe Campus is only 40 minutes from London by train, and just 30 minutes from London Heathrow Airport. The Uxbridge Campus is even closer.

We take great pride that our students achieve better rates of highly skilled employment than predicted by our entry tariff. These excellent outcomes are testament not only to our students’ efforts, but also the hard work and dedication of our people whom support them, both in and out of the classroom.

Our vision is to create a great workplace for the people who work at Bucks, now and in the future. We recognise that creating a diverse workplace culture is key to our success, and that our values and behaviours have an important role to play in delivering a great student experience.

The Bucks People 2022 strategy - developed with representatives from a cross-section of the University and the leadership team - details our people aims, outcomes, and priorities over the next four years and beyond. Our people make Bucks a special place, and are key to the University’s future success and growth. We work collectively to transform the lives of our students by putting them at the heart of everything we do.

At Bucks we are as ambitious for our employees as we are for our students, encouraging them to embrace new possibilities to achieve their goals and objectives. We are never complacent at Bucks, and always looking to improve the way we do things to sustain a culture where both our employees and students thrive. You can read about Bucks Benefits here.

We want to be an employer of choice for great and capable people whom take pride in the University and share its values. You can find out more about how you can be part of our exciting journey.
