We are seeking to appoint highly skilled Associate Tutors across our degree disciplines to support in the delivery and contribute to the development of our curriculum. Ultimately, you’ll inspire, guide and support our students in reaching their full potential and unlocking greatness. 

You will ensure our students have a sector leading learning experience that provides a strong trajectory into employment and early career advancement. As an industry led University with a core focus on career preparedness and character and personal development, we welcome candidates with a strong background or experience in industry.

You may be an industry professional or expert with a wealth of experience and a passion for investing in future talent, or an innovative and pioneering academic with a real desire to break with convention and support our truly unique and visionary initiative. 

You will be a highly effective educator, teacher, mentor or coach with exceptional interpersonal skills and an ability to communicate effectively with people from diverse backgrounds.  You will also have a passion for providing accessible, high-quality education, be an innovator in your own practice and be a strong team player and collaborator.

Successful candidates will have:
