With a strong focus on the student experience, we are committed to excellent, inclusive teaching that prepares our students for professional employment and inspires them to achieve their ambitions. We deliver across a range of Business-related subject areas and are currently expanding provision through new partnerships and a developing portfolio of higher and degree apprenticeships. Our teaching, research and civic engagement make a real impact across business, public services and our community and in recognition of this we have recently become the first Business School in the UK to be assessed by the EFMD for their Business School Impact System label.

The successful candidate will be responsible for delivering research informed teaching and learning, curriculum development and review, and for providing an excellent student experience.
