Frequently Asked Questions

The experience we list is recommended but not mandatory. As long as you have a passion for problem solving and a hunger for learning new skills, you should still apply. 

Unfortunately, we require you be at the University of Leeds this year if you are applying,  due to the workload and physical commitments required of the role.

For now, be sure to subscribe to our recruiting mailing list and we will email you once team member positions become available. 

We’ll be posting all of our progress on our social media so follow us on Facebook, Instagram and LinkedIn to stay up to date.
