Are you an academic looking for an innovative and successful university to take your next step? At NTU, we recognise that our greatest strengths lie in the energy, expertise, and experience that our colleagues bring. Thanks to our £421million investment in estates and equipment across our three campuses since 2003/4, we deliver an inspirational learning environment for both staff and students.  Our research facilities allow us to shape lives and society, which is central to our mission and achievements of our aims.

2017 has been a year full of prizes, publicity, and recognition for the NTU community, culminating in our receipt of the prestigious University of the Year award. Along the way, we’ve recorded some of the highest student satisfaction levels in the country in the 2017 National Student Survey, and achieved the TEF gold standard for the quality of our teaching. We are also extremely proud to have been named Modern University of the Year in the Times and Sunday Times Good University Guide 2018. All of these achievements are testament to the passion, ideas, and ambition of our workforce.

The School of Arts and Humanities is looking for an experienced multiplatform journalist to join our dynamic team within the Centre for Broadcasting and Journalism delivering industry-standard skills and knowledge to students across our undergraduate and postgraduate journalism courses. All of our courses are professionally accredited by either the Broadcasting Journalism Training Council (BJTC) or the National Council for the Training of Journalists (NCTJ).

As well as professional experience in broadcasting within digital media, television, and/or radio news, you will have teaching experience at HE level, well-developed knowledge of the journalism industry and allied professions, and an awareness of trends and market expectations in the sector. You will be able to contribute to the design and delivery of an ever-changing curriculum that reflects industry and equips our graduates for work. The successful candidate will be fully conversant with the standards of the BJTC. Applicants with a specialism in data journalism, social media, or political journalism will be welcome.

You will be keen to develop your own skills and knowledge through research, and by maintaining and developing links with news organisations to ensure that the department remains current and in-step with the latest technology and journalism practice. The role requires excellent communication and interpersonal skills as you will support the learning of our students at both undergraduate and postgraduate levels. In addition to this the successful candidate will contribute to the development, assessment, and management of academic programmes within the department.
