It may become a requirement for anyone successfully appointed to this role to undertake an enhanced DBS check, in order to undertake specific project work. Appointees will be asked to declare any spent convictions at the point at which a project requires an enhanced DBS check. The enhanced DBS check will then be carried out before they undertake work relating to that specific project.
The University strives to be diverse and inclusive – a place where we can ALL be ourselves.
We particularly encourage applications from people who identify as Black, Asian or from a Minority Ethnic background, who are underrepresented at the University.
We offer family friendly, flexible working arrangements, with forums and inclusive facilities to support our staff. #EqualityatYork
