Lecturer in Enterprise

Salary range: 
£35,211 to £40,792 pa

Based in the Suffolk Business School, you will be involved in the delivery and development of modules associated with enterprise and entrepreneurship. A willingness to teach business law would be an advantage as would capability in the arenas of ‘knowledge management’ and ‘innovation’.

You will be expected to contribute to the development and delivery of the School's enterprise/CPD work and regional industry engagement. As part of the typical academic duties expected for a lecturer grade, the post-holder will support ongoing initiatives to market and develop the School and its programmes and may be expected to undertake programme leadership.

Suffolk Business School builds its programmes around 5 ‘big ideas’ – advocacy, plurality, accountability, enterprise and application – to cement and project its core identity. These big ideas are located within a signature pedagogy which allows us to develop ‘career-ready’ graduates primed for the demands of the graduate employment market.

The post offers you the chance to join a vibrant academic community and a ground-level opportunity to lead, shape and develop the new programmes that will deliver the next generation of managers and executives who will graduate from the University of Suffolk.

The post holder will be expected to deliver teaching, which builds upon and reflects their subject-specialist knowledge to undergraduates, postgraduates, MBA/ MSc students and professional audiences.  An appreciation of the demands associated with Programme Leadership; a willingness to engage in CPD and, more broadly, a track-record in research activity will be a particular advantage.

An appropriate post graduate qualification, or equivalent qualification, is essential for this position.
