The Student Education Service is a passionate and ambitious University service that supports 38,000-plus students and 9,200-plus staff, to deliver an exceptional student experience. Our teams are committed to supporting every student to make the most of their time at Leeds and go on to succeed in their chosen career.

Teamwork is key to our success and we proactively seek to work collaboratively with others in the wider University community and externally. If you like the idea of being part of a community of 800 professional staff working across our beautiful campus then we would love to hear from you.
