Senior Lecturer - Management

Manchester Metropolitan University - Department of Management


Average weekly working hours: 37.00


Renowned for fostering links with business, the Department of Management’s expertise spans the spheres of strategy, international business, innovation, enterprise and entrepreneurship, alongside the more specialist subjects of human resource management and sports management. Staff provide academic leadership for a broad undergraduate and postgraduate portfolio as well as executive educational programmes including the Masters in Sports Directorship and Executive MBA. The department is distinctive for its links to professional bodies including the Chartered Institute of Personnel and Development (CIPD) and the Chartered Management Institute, the Institute of Directors, meaning course content is acutely linked to the needs of today’s business environment.

A core strength of our Business Management teaching is its capability to design and teach a contemporary Business curriculum, enabling students to apply critical modes of enquiry to everyday and strategic business issues. Our teaching, research, and impact on practice, is internationally recognised through its professional accreditations, student satisfaction results and by the quality of its academic staff. The successful and expanding Department of Management is seeking to appoint two Senior Lecturers in Management disciplines to support the development and delivery of our new Apprenticeship degree along with our mainstream provision.


The post holder will lead cohorts of part-time undergraduate students (degree apprentices), act as an academic mentor, and be responsible for the development and delivery of programme units according to their specialist knowledge and experience. Experience of delivering programmes to business professionals is desirable. The post holder will also contribute to full-time undergraduate and postgraduate delivery as required. We are looking for individuals with teaching experience in people management, strategy and/or business environment. S/he will be expected to visit degree apprentices in their workplace to conduct regular three-way reviews with the student and their employer, including setting and reviewing work-based learning assignments.

Ideal Candidate

Successful candidates must have a strong track record of excellent and innovative teaching on undergraduate programmes that utilise a work-based context. Substantial experience of interpreting and translating employer work-based development needs into appropriate learning experiences is a distinct advantage. S/he will bring a research active mindset to departmental scholarly and knowledge exchange activities with a commitment to deliver intellectual contributions.
