This post is full time and permanent, working 35 hours per week

Do you have a vision for how tomorrow’s media companies will grow and thrive?

Can you teach and support international postgraduates to manage creative projects, develop media businesses and build their careers in the media and creative industries?

The University of Westminster is looking for an industry practitioner with experience of teaching or training to join our team of senior lecturers delivering a suite of three highly successful Masters programmes in media management and media business.

We are seeking candidates with professional experience in the media or creative industries and a degree in business or a relevant discipline (e.g. media and communications or social sciences). A strong network of industry contacts will be an especial advantage as providing work experience opportunities for international students is an important dimension of the role. We are particularly interested in candidates with experience or deep knowledge of any or all of the following: content and format development and production, media project management, digital production and distribution, financial, statistical or data analysis and Theories of media management or of business.

In the short term the successful candidate will support the course leaders in teaching, assessing and administering the programmes as deputy course leader. In the medium-term the post is likely to provide the opportunity to take on a course leadership role. The post also provides the opportunity for short teaching visits to China because, although delivery in 2020-21 will take place in the UK (Harrow Campus) and online, one of the programmes is usually taught partly in Beijing.

While the courses are primarily concerned with media management and practice, Westminster plays a leading role in media research through the internationally-rated Communication and Media Research Institute (CAMRI). Familiarity with business or academic research is not essential but would be an advantage as staff are encouraged to pursue research interests and play an active role in relevant media management and economics research networks.

The University of Westminster is committed to supporting diversity and equal opportunities in our dealings with job applicants, students, staff and the public. We are fully committed to creating a stimulating and supportive learning and working environment based on mutual respect and trust.

We are fortunate to receive a large number of applications for our vacancies. Regrettably, we are not able to provide feedback to those job applicants who are not shortlisted, as it simply would not be manageable to do so.

Embracing diversity and promoting equality.
