Following several years of strong domestic growth and international expansion, the Faculty of Business and Law (FBL) is seeking an innovative specialist in events and hospitality to join our expanding Events, Tourism & Hospitality Subject Group.
The Events, Tourism & Hospitality Subject Group is one of eight in the Faculty and has continued to grow in recent years as a result of both emerging international partnerships and new additions to the programme portfolio. In addition to onsite delivery, modules and programmes are now delivered by online learning, and through an expanding range of partners in the UK and internationally.
The successful applicant can expect to teach across the events and hospitality domain at undergraduate and postgraduate levels. A specialism in one or more of the following is essential: events planning and risk, international hotel management, service excellence.
A Master’s qualification in a relevant subject or equivalent professional qualification are essential. Experience of programme leadership, distance learning and learning technologies, in addition to practical industry experience to complement academic credentials, would also be strongly advantageous.
It is highly likely that this post will involve collaboration with international partners and/or international travel.
Interview Date: Thursday 5 October 2017
The University of Northampton’s focus on a personalised learning experience for our students was recently cited by HEFCE as a reason for our Gold award in the Teaching Excellence Framework 2017. To augment this approach further we have adopted an ‘Active Blended Learning’ (ABL) approach which places greater emphasis on student-centred activities that support the development of subject knowledge, understanding, independent learning and digital fluency. Successful candidates for academic posts at the University of Northampton will be expected to adopt ABL as standard in their teaching practice.
This is an exciting time to join our University as we prepare to relocate in September 2018 to a new purpose-built, town-centre campus designed to adapt to 21st century teaching and the ABL model. We are looking to recruit individuals who share our passion for innovation, creativity and social impact and who will play a key role as we realise our ambition of transforming lives for the better and inspiring positive change.
The University of Northampton is one of only two Ashoka U Changemaker Campuses in the UK, and in 2017 was awarded the Social Enterprise Gold Mark, an independent guarantee that we have proven to our employees, students and stakeholders that we are committed to continuous improvement across our business in order to consistently deliver a positive impact on people and planet.
All candidates will be asked to provide proof of eligibility to work in the UK at interview.
