Founded in 1894, City, University of London is a global university committed to academic excellence with a focus on business and the professions and an enviable central London location.
City attracts around 20,000 students (over 40% at postgraduate level), from more than 150 countries and staff from over 75 countries.
In the last decade, City has almost tripled the proportion of its total academic staff producing world-leading or internationally excellent research. During this period, City has made significant investments in its academic staff, its estate and its infrastructure and continues to work towards realising its vision of being a leading global university.
City has recently invested a significant amount of funding in an institution-wide Career Activation Programme to embed Career Focus across the undergraduate curriculum and to ensure all undergraduate students gain professional-level experience.
Within the School of Communication & Creativity (SCC), this plan is implemented by designing new modules that, amongst other things, provide interdisciplinary Professional Level Experience via live project briefs.
The appointed candidate will be working closely with the Associate Dean for Engagement, Enterprise and Employability to support the implementation of City’s Career Activation Programme and ensure that professional level experience can be delivered at scale.
The post holder will design, develop and deliver employability related modules across the SCC school as well as liaising with the relevant professional services to improve the employability prospects and experiences of SCC students, working towards increasing positive graduate outcomes.
This is an exciting new role for an individual with the ambition to play a key part in the development and delivery of employability education in the School of Communication & Creativity.
We are looking for either an academic specialising in employability and career development, or someone with professional experience relevant to SCC with an interest in higher education and teaching. A working knowledge of the job sectors relevant to SCC students is considered an asset for this role.
City offers a sector-leading salary, pension scheme and benefits including a comprehensive package of staff training and development.
The role is available from 01 September 2023 or later by negotiation.
