Working at the Bristol Medical School

There are several different routes into a fulfilling career in business administration and technical support all with opportunities to progress into a management role.

Reasons to work here:

  • We offer flexibility for your working day.  Our school core hours have changed to 9.30am – 3.00pm to take account of those with caring responsibilities
  • Support in enhancing your skills with workshops/courses and online learning
  • Mentoring opportunities
  • Staff social clubs and societies – There are a variety of in-house clubs and societies you can become involved with, make new friends and connect with the University community.  From film nights, basket-ball to knitting and yoga. 

I have received a huge amount of support progressing from Apprentice to Administrator. As a person with a disability I have been able to take time off when required and had the opportunity to share my experience with my colleagues and in outreach to potential future employees”. Prior to working for the university I had a career in healthcare.

The Bristol Medical School is enjoyable to work within because I feel valued as an individual as well as, as part of a fantastic team. There is support for progression and development, as well as team building and sharing ideas both across the school and departments. No two days are the same, and there are so many exciting opportunities that are available, which you are encouraged to explore (I am so pleased to be involved in MART, the Bristol Medical School's Anti-Racism Group). Finally, working within the Bristol Medical School has helped develop me personally and professionally and I’m excited to see where my career takes me.

As a part-time yoga teacher I have the flexibility of working my hours with the University over 4 days of sometimes starting earlier and finishing early so I can teach an evening class, or starting later and finishing later so I can teach an early class - I have a wonderful University/Yoga Teacher balance!
