The non-academic staff play a vital and supportive role that complement the work of the teaching and research staff, without which there will not be the complete realisation of the goals of the university. For this reason, the study focus on their motivation, job satisfaction and turnover intention in the University of Nottingham, UK.

Correlation analyses revealed the significant positive relationship between motivation and job satisfaction and a significant negative relationship between job satisfaction and turnover intentions. Regression analyses revealed that the nature of work was the significant job satisfaction facet that significantly and negatively predicts turnover intention of the non-academic staff at the University of Nottingham.

Managerial implications: The management and human resource practitioners at the University of Nottingham need to recognise how the nature of work significantly influence the turnover intention of their non-academic staff when designing retention strategies.
