Are you capable of delivering excellence in teaching and learning particularly at the undergraduate level? Do you have experience of taught programme management, and willing and able work with an exciting new mixed-mode, distance delivery of programme in economics?  If so this is an exciting opportunity to apply for the post of Reader in Economics (Teaching and Scholarship) and Director of Apprenticeship Programmes (Professional Economist Degree Apprenticeship Programme). 

The School of Economics has been awarded a contract to provide the education component of a Degree Apprenticeship Programme to apprentices employed by the Government Economic Service (GES), the Bank of England and a number of other very high profile employers in England and Wales. This exciting new development will involve our delivery of novel distance learning opportunities for highly qualified and motivated students who might not have considered University or a Degree in Economics within their options.  You will therefore be primarily engaged and responsible for the teaching and management of apprenticeship programmes.

As Reader in Economics you will:

  • Deliver and contribute to the design and teaching of high-quality, student centred  undergraduate programmes in economics
  • Manage and maintain Degree Apprenticeship programme material, processes and standards
  • Undertake scholarship activity, independently and collaboratively

To be successful in this role you will have:

  • A PhD or equivalent in Economics
  • Extensive experience of effective teaching and assessment of economics in a Higher Education setting
  • Evidence of performing effective economic investigation for the benefit of government, other public or commercial bodies

We welcome applications from suitably qualified Applied Economists with a strong track record in the delivery, innovation and programme administration of economics teaching in UK higher education. 

Further information on teaching and research may be found on the School’s website:

Please note that while the expected deadline is 25th august 2019, this advert may close earlier than anticipated if suitable applications are received prior to this date.
