We are currently seeking to appoint a Course Director to lead Creative Writing at undergraduate level, including leadership of two courses, and contributions at postgraduate level, as part of the English and Creative Writing provision at the School of Cultural Studies and Humanities at Leeds Beckett University.

At Leeds Beckett, we regard Creative Writing as a discipline of the Humanities which enriches culture and society. We want our students to gain confidence in their abilities, and an inclusive, global outlook that empowers them to make a positive difference in the lives of others. We take a broad view of the value of Creative Writing and seek to promote its value in the development of graduate skills leading to diverse career trajectories.

As Course Director, the successful candidate will be responsible for providing course leadership, organisation and management to provide our students with an excellent education experience preparing them for their future professional lives. Alongside the Head of English and Creative Writing, the post holder will oversee the undergraduate provision for Creative Writing, including teaching at this level, and contribute leadership and teaching at postgraduate level, too. The successful candidate will provide course leadership of the BA (Hons) English and Creative Writing and BA (Hons) Creative Writing in Contemporary Cultures.

We are looking to appoint a candidate with the professional, managerial and academic experience to lead the courses forward in this demanding time. Applications are welcomed from successful practitioners and experienced academics in the field of Creative Writing with teaching and course organisational experience. The possession of a PhD is essential. You will be able to demonstrate a good record of achievement in creative writing practice and teaching and learning, and perhaps scholarship and research. We are particularly keen to hear from candidates with the ability and passion to create opportunities for students to acquire graduate-level skills and experiences through teaching, learning and assessment in Creative Writing. A proven ability to lead digital innovation of teaching, learning and assessment may be advantageous.

For further inquiries please contact Professor Rob Burroughs, Head of English and Creative Writing (r.m.burroughs@leedsbeckett.ac.uk).
