Are you interested in working for a world top 100 University? As a unit within the Faculty of Arts and Humanities delivering specialist and non-specialist language training in eight languages to over 2.500 students and staff of the University, as well as members of the local community, the Modern Languages Teaching Centre (MLTC) seeks to appoint a University Teacher in French who will co-ordinate its popular French programme. As such, you will be responsible for all aspects of the provision, supervising and supporting the work of a team of teachers, delivering courses ranging from beginners’ to near-native levels, contributing to administrative duties in relation to French courses, and playing an active role in the senior management of the MLTC.

You will have native or near-native proficiency in French with knowledge of current affairs and cultural life in French-speaking countries and regions, an excellent track record in teaching French in higher education for general and possibly specific purposes, and experience of managing a small team. You will have a postgraduate degree involving French (or equivalent experience), a teaching qualification, and a strong commitment to professional development and the delivery of a high-quality, innovative language-learning experience to students.

This is a unique opportunity to join a highly motivated team of academic and administrative professionals in a supportive environment. This full-time, open-ended post has a start date of 20th January 2020 or as soon as possible thereafter.

We’re one of the best not-for-profit organisations to work for in the UK.

We believe in the power of diversity to help us address big global challenges and aim to actively build diverse teams. We know that when people come together with different views, approaches and insights it leads to richer, more creative and innovative teaching and research, better understanding of student needs and aspirations and the highest level of student experience. We particularly welcome candidates from Black, Asian and Minority Ethnic backgrounds. All appointments will be based on merit.
