Advanced notice of system downtime Saturday 04 Jul 2020 12:00 PM - 13:30 PM

The University of Oxford directs applicants to its online recruitment system for the majority of vacancies. Due to essential maintenance, this system will be unavailable for use between 12:00pm noon and 13:30pm UK time on Saturday 04 July. During this period applicants can view a list of job vacancies by visiting this page, but applicants will have no access to their online accounts and will not be able to work on, or submit, any applications. 

If you are in the process of applying for a vacancy, please ensure you save your progress before the system is taken down, as any unsaved work will be lost. Please be assured however that your saved, partially completed application will be available for you to complete and submit when the system is restored.

Please accept our apologies for any inconvenience.


In light of the coronavirus (COVID-19) challenges, the University is re-assessing its resource requirements.

As a result, we are pausing some existing recruitment until further notice. You will be kept informed during the process but please also be aware that responding to applicants may take slightly longer than usual.

People are the foundation of the University's success. Build a career in an organisation that changes lives.

We foster an inclusive culture that promotes equality of opportunity, values diversity and maintains a working, learning and social environment in which the rights and dignity of all our staff and students are respected. Personal and professional development is key to enabling inviduals to reach their full potential and maximise their contribution to the University. The University's Strategic Plan includes commitment to recruit and retain the best and ensure that under-represented groups have equality of opportunity in recruitment.
