The University of Sheffield has been named as one of the best not-for-profit organisations to work for in the UK by The Sunday Times, and is the only university to be included in the list.

The Sunday Times Best 100 Companies is an annual ranking of Britain’s happiest and most motivated workforces. Its publication each year is now a highly anticipated event in the UK’s business calendar.

The accolade recognises the University as a remarkable place to work where the brightest and most inspiring minds can achieve their ambitions and change the world. It also underlines the outstanding contribution that its staff make to the University’s position as one of the top 100 universities in the world, renowned for excellence, impact and distinctiveness of its research-led learning and teaching.

Professor Sir Keith Burnett, Vice-Chancellor of the University of Sheffield, said: “I am delighted that the University has been recognised in this way, however a university is only as strong as the staff who teach students, carry out research, and who support vital work from running our libraries and laboratories to student accommodation and IT provision.

“It is our dedicated and talented staff from around the world who make this institution a place of high educational standards and an excellent place to work, and for that I am very grateful to them all.”
