We are proud to be recognised as a life-changing University. Last year we were shortlisted for the “University of the Year” award and were ranked in the Top 50 Universities in the Guardian League tables for 2022.

Success is not just about our league table results and awards but our contribution to society. Our career-focused and professions-facing approach ensures we have a track record of providing graduates valued by employers and society. The University is passionate about supporting people to reach their potential, and we have recognised the need to help school leavers in the subject area of Business and Management.

The primary purpose of this role is to deliver teaching and learning of an employer-focused curriculum within the faculty. The role will embed employer engagement through collaboration between industry professionals, academics, and students to enhance the student experience and develop employability. Ideally, you will be someone experienced in education, focusing on developing graduate attributes. This role might suit someone currently working in a work-based learning environment and looking to enter their first academic role. You will hold a doctorate (or be nearing completion) and a postgraduate qualification in a relevant field.

This role is within Sunderland Business School, a part of the Faculty of Business, Law and Tourism at St. Peter’s Campus, Sunderland. Your responsibilities will include delivering learning and teaching to students on campus and online and contributing to our research and knowledge exchange activities.

It is an exciting time to join Sunderland Business School as we seek Lecturers in Professional Practice with the ambition to be at the forefront of scholarship in a growing University. If you are passionate about transforming students’ lives and impacting society through your research, consider joining our successful team.
