“I wouldn’t change my experience of Chad’s for the world. I’ve made great friends and feel like I have and will always be part of a really special community.”
“I’ve had an incredible time here at Durham and I believe St Chad’s has played a major part in that…it’s made me as a person.”
St Chad’s is one of the oldest and most popular colleges in Durham. Established in 1904 as an Anglican foundation, Chad’s today welcomes students of all faiths and beliefs to study for the whole range of Durham University degrees. With nearly 400 undergraduate and 150 postgraduate students, we are a small, human-sized community with an excellent reputation as a college where students will be both challenged and supported.
Most years, our students achieve amongst the highest academic results in Durham. We have a vibrant intellectual culture including excellent library resources and study space, as well as our own Research Unit – Policy and Practice – which focuses on issues of inclusion and justice.
St Chad’s is a progressive, enterprising college, home to students from all over the world, and from all parts of the UK, from a wide variety of backgrounds. Our motto is “non vestra sed vos” – “not what you have but who you are”. St Chad’s is a community where all kinds of diversity is respected and where you will be valued, just as you are, and encouraged to develop into all you can be.

Vacancy – Finance Assistant (Part Time)
St Chad’s is a distinctive, independent college within Durham University. A separate registered charity with its own governing body, its origins date back to 1904 when it was created as a Church of England foundation to enable the ordination of clergy from poorer backgrounds. Today it is a vibrant and progressive academic community, home to 550 students, including 150 postgraduates. St Chad’s welcomes students and staff of all faiths, cultures, nationalities, and educational backgrounds. Its ethos is friendly, traditional, and forward-looking.
St Chad’s is committed to delivering a professional level of service to all its stakeholders and we are looking to appoint a part-time Finance Assistant. The post holder will work closely with and be line-managed by the Financial Controller, and will be expected to build and maintain excellent working relationships with a range of people including staff, students and commercial clients.
