Placement Tutor

De Montfort University

DMU is an ambitious, truly globally-minded institution with a relentless focus on delivering high quality teaching. A culturally rich university with a strong commitment to the public good, it strives to maintain a stimulating, innovative and inclusive environment where staff and students are able to thrive. The Faculty of Arts, Design and Humanities offers undergraduate and postgraduate programmes to more than 5,000 students. This rapidly growing academic community delivers an outstanding learning experience to students, as evidenced by our recent TEF gold award and attains excellent employability results. As part of our degree programmes, our student are encouraged to undertake a placement year in industry and enjoy the opportunity to apply their theoretical knowledge to real industry practice.

As part of the continued growth within the faculty and the importance that is placed on students undertaking placements, we are seeking to appoint a dedicated Placement Tutor to support the students' learning before, during and after their placement year, ensuring a robust and high-quality student experience. The role will involve nurturing relationships with employers on the occasion of placement visits, building the partnership for future students and supporting the university's Employer Engagement Strategy. You should have industry experience and an ability to communicate with stakeholders at all levels. The role will also require sensitivity to a diverse range of student needs and the ability to help students reflect on their learning and developmental process. Experience of teaching in the broad area of arts, design and humanities would also be an advantage. The post will require extensive UK and occasional international travel.
