Whether you are new to the town or you have lived around these parts all your life, there is always something new to discover about the town.
Huddersfield has a great cultural mix with people from many different countries making up the population of the town. This inevitably leads to an eclectic range of restaurants situated in the town centre and surrounding villages and it is possible to sample food from across the world.
Whether you fancy an Indian or a Chinese, Turkish or Thai, there is always something to suit everyone’s tastes. With Manchester, Leeds and Bradford on your doorstep, you are never short of a decent place to go and grab a bite to eat.
If you enjoy going out for a drink before or after a meal, Huddersfield has a wide variety of pubs and clubs to suit every occasion. Whether you are a real ale drinker or sophisticated wine connoisseur, there are plenty of places to choose from.
Huddersfield is the home to an annual food and drink festival in August and the town also hosts an annual contemporary music festival, the UK’s largest international festival of new and experimental music.
If shopping is more your thing, Huddersfield is a great place to spend the day. With a great mixture of old arcades and the contemporary Kingsgate Centre, the town can cater for most fashion tastes. Add to this the mix of coffee shops and eateries and Huddersfield ticks all the boxes. If you are looking for a day out, Manchester and Leeds are only a 30 minute train ride away.
The University of Huddersfield is home to many clubs and societies for students to get involved with during their time with us. Although staff cannot play in the matches, it is a good opportunity for you to get out and watch a new sport and cheer on the University as they do battle with sides up and down the country. Why not catch a game of ice hockey or American football and see how the Hawks get on?
The annual Varsity match against the University of Bradford always brings out huge crowds to cheer on both universities as they do battle across all sporting disciplines.

As an employee of the University of Huddersfield you have access to lots of employee benefits. But the benefits are not the only great thing about working for the University of Huddersfield. Here is a list of the top five things about working for the University of Huddersfield:
The University of Huddersfield is one of the largest employers in the town with 623 full-time academic staff, over 563 part-time academic staff and about 964 administrative, technical and support staff.

This may involve brushing up on basic skills or even taking a postgraduate qualification. Our in-house Staff Development Team provides an extensive range of training courses for all career stages and can work with you to pull together an individual training plan.
The University of Huddersfield is committed to investing in property across the campus. Recent investments include the £16 million Business School and our state-of-the-art Creative Arts building with further developments planned.
The University recognises the importance of investing in facilities to produce world leading professionals and this applies to both our students and staff. We hope that by providing a pleasant and modern working environment, our staff will feel at home while they are in the workplace.
