The vision of Leeds Business School (LBS) is to be an excellent, accessible, innovative and engaged Business School which contributes substantially to the regional economy.
The successful launch of new courses, including those of applied practice and professional courses, has given us a significant opportunity to increase and enrich our team of lecturing staff in the Business School. Successful candidates would join a lively, diverse international cadre of academics drawn from a variety of professional backgrounds. LBS has a long history of applied learning and engagement with business and industry, and we are seeking an academic with extensive practitioner experience as a journalist who is capable of delivering and managing multiple modules across the BA (Hons) in Sports Journalism. Specialist BJTC experience will be an advantage.
You will have significant and recent experience in the industry and will demonstrate a commitment to providing high quality teaching across our journalism modules. You will have excellent story-telling and editorial skills across a range of media. You will also have experience in designing and delivering BJTC standard Newsdays. We are looking for strong video and TV skills in addition to digital/online skills or other journalism skills. Up-to-date knowledge of cross-platform newsrooms and delivery would be an advantage.
As a member of our School you would be expected to undertake a number of activities including research, teaching across a range of levels and contexts from first year undergraduate to Masters students, supervision of projects and/or dissertations and, potentially, also bespoke in-company delivery.
Closing date: 30th June 2023 (23:59) Please note that you will not be able to edit or submit a part-completed application form after the closing date.
Working here means you’ll also have access to a wide range of benefits including our generous pension schemes, excellent holiday entitlements, flexible working, reduced study fees, subsidised fitness facilities and a lot more.
