The division is committed to embedding employability skills within the curriculum, and welcomes candidates with strong links to industry.

As well as teaching on existing modules, and helping shape them to include skills in reporting and writing for broadcast platforms, the post-holder will also develop dedicated modules – at undergraduate and postgraduate level - preparing students for a broadcast career.
