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 course team delivering a suite of three highly successful Masters programmes in media management and media business. The successful candidate will lead the MA in Global Media Business, a thriving and established MA run in partnership with the Communication University of China.

We are seeking candidates with at least five years’ 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 advantage and 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;
  • Theories of media management or of business. 

The post also provides the opportunity for short teaching visits to China because, although delivery has taken place in the UK (Harrow Campus) and online since the start of the Covid pandemic, some of the MA in Global Media Business 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 colleagues are encouraged to pursue research interests and play an active role in relevant media management and economics research networks.

At the University of Westminster, diversity, inclusion and equality of opportunity are at the core of how we engage with students, colleagues, applicants, visitors and all our stakeholders. 

We are fully committed to enabling a supportive and safe learning and working environment which is equitable, diverse and inclusive, is based on mutual respect and trust, and in which harassment and discrimination are neither tolerated nor acceptable.
