Looking for work within the University?

DUTE offers a great opportunity to find temporary paid employment, whether you are a University graduate, are currently employed by the University and looking to take on more work, or are retired and interested in coming back to the University on a temporary basis.

As you are already familiar with the University life and its surroundings, DUTE can provide you with the possibility of working within the University, which will allow you to:

  • Gain paid work experience
  • Enhance your transferable skills
  • Build your CV

The process involves using the information you submit, followed by an interview, to allow us to establish whether there is a suitable vacancy that we can match you to within the University.

Looking to fill a vacancy in your College, School or Department?

DUTE can provide your College/School/Department with a suitable temporary worker who has University experience and has been fully assessed by us.  If you are in need of filling a short-term vacancy for any of the following reasons;

  • Short-term absence
  • Assistance with specific projects
  • Seasonal workload,

then temporary staff is offered for no service charge whatsoever and this, therefore is a more cost effective option than external employment agencies offer.
