Lecturer/Senior Lecturer in Event Management

University of the West of England, Bristol - Business & Management

The MET subject group seeks to appoint a Lecturer/Senior Lecturer who can contribute fully to departmental activities. Candidates should normally hold a postgraduate qualification in a relevant discipline or equivalent professional qualifications.

Working in the Department of Business and Management that includes the Marketing, Events and Tourism (MET) Cluster, this post will focus on teaching and supporting students on specialist programmes within the cluster and also across the department and wider faculty.

We are seeking applicants who are committed to teaching, research, and external engagement. You should be able to contribute to undergraduate, postgraduate, and executive education programmes across a range of marketing management disciplines and demonstrate an ability to build links locally and regionally that will enhance the student experience.

A proven ability to lead teaching in the areas of functional areas of event management, contemporary issues and professional practice in events, and work-based approaches to learning in events will be particularly valuable.

The nature of the subject group’s teaching means that you should be confident, outgoing, and comfortable working as part of a teaching team on large modules (150+ students), as well as independently on specialist marketing modules.

You should be equally comfortable working with our full-time undergraduates or our post-experience postgraduate students, as well as credible in dealing with clients who may be at senior levels within external organisations.

Main duties and responsibilities:

  • To teach aspects of marketing at undergraduate, postgraduate, and professional levels.
  • To further develop the curriculum and provide opportunities for a range of student engagement opportunities.
  • To contribute to the research and knowledge exchange activities of the subject group.
  • To undertake module leadership, or other academic roles as required.
  • To undertake appropriate continuing personal and professional development.
  • To contribute to the collegiate life of the Subject Group, Department, Faculty, and University.
  • To adhere to FBL business processes and meet required deadlines.

If you would like an informal discussion, please contact Andrea Beetles (telephone: 0117 3287452 or email: Andrea.Beetles@uwe.ac.uk).

Other benefits, in addition to salary:

  • a generous holiday allowance of 35 days;
  • up to 12.5 bank holiday/closure days per year in addition;
  • flexible working;
  • excellent defined benefit pension schemes;
  • option to participate in the cycle to work scheme;
  • family friendly policies;
  • onsite nursery at our Frenchay Campus;
  • option to purchase childcare vouchers.

The post is based at our lively Frenchay campus where we are investing over £200m in new facilities.

We host distinguished business and academic addresses as well as student conferences and provides space for businesses and commercial associations such as the IoD to meet.
