Do I need to apply online?

We would ask that all candidates apply for posts online, which allows us to deal with your application quickly and you will have immediate confirmation that we have received it.

However, we recognise that online application is not always possible. If you need to make your application by alternative means please contact us on e.recruitment@durham.ac.uk or +44 (0) 191 334 6536 to discuss suitable arrangements.

Closing time

The closing date and time for each post is provided in each of the job descriptions.

Unfortunately we are unable to accept applications after the closing time, including where the application has been partially completed. Please give yourself sufficient time to upload your documents in advance of any post closing.

Can I withdraw my application?

You cannot withdraw your application via our recruitment system. If you have changed your mind (and we would be sorry to see you go), please let us know as soon as possible at e.recruitment@durham.ac.uk and we will ensure your application is not progressed further.
