Can you inspire the next generation of engineers, as part of an innovative Degree Apprenticeship programme? Do you have the ability to develop innovative teaching and learning practices?

Underpinned by the breadth, depth and quality of its research, WMG offers a wide range of courses at all levels for full time and part time students, and for company-based personnel from companies such as Airbus, BAE Systems, Dyson, HSE, JLR and Network Rail, resulting in a wide range of delivery to satisfy our broad client base.

With significant experience in the field of mechanical engineering and engineering simulation, you will join a rapidly expanding team in the delivery of innovative Degree Apprenticeship programmes, including the established Applied Engineering Programme and the forthcoming Dyson programme. Flexibility to contribute across other undergraduate and postgraduate programmes would be a distinct advantage, as well as a willingness to contribute to strategic growth of new programmes as required.

The teaching and learning environment is rapidly evolving, with a distinct shift to a greater level of engagement utilising technology enabled learning and lab-based sessions, as well as more traditional lectures. You will need to demonstrate flexibility to adapt and innovate your approach to teaching and learning to embrace this evolution. Some overseas teaching may also be required.

This is an exciting opportunity for you to develop your own professional profile and work as part of a successful team, contributing to the development of its teaching and learning activities. In return we will provide a great range of benefits which include an attractive pension scheme, 30 days holiday plus Christmas closure, some fantastic savings on a wide range of products and services, and excellent learning and development opportunities.
