About us

We want a world where people learn, discover and thrive through access to technology. No matter who they are or where they live. We're a social enterprise, so every penny we create is reinvested in our core purpose.

We're a place where people make a difference to our members, feel valued and have fun. Our values are our guiding principles. They are pride, passion, pace, trust, and teamwork.

Why work at Jisc

We want to make sure our people have the flexibility they need to balance their personal lives and do well at work. So, we focus on outputs rather than presenteeism and are open to a whole range of ways of working including flexible hours and working from home.

We're always learning and developing. All our people have access to a huge variety of learning resources to help them achieve this.

Our benefits are great too:
  • We offer 25 days holiday (plus bank holidays and 3 days Christmas closure)
  • We contribute a huge 19.5% to your 8.8% for your pension from day one
  • We provide discounts on IT equipment, a cycle to work scheme and season ticket loans
  • We also offer generous parental leave arrangements, career breaks and volunteer leave


This role will be based in Bristol.

Connecting with each other is a doddle, thanks to our technology, but getting face to face is something we value and find time for when we can, so you may need to travel on occasion. Our main offices are in Bristol, Harwell, London and Manchester.

Other stuff you need to know

At Jisc we celebrate diversity and know that it's critical for our success. We work hard to make sure we're inclusive. So, if you are great at what you do and share our values, we want to hear from you.

If you need any adjustments made to the application or selection process so you can do your best, let us know. We will be happy to help.

We review CVs as we receive them and interview as soon as we receive good applications. We don't use closing dates. So, please apply as soon as possible to avoiding missing out on this role.
