Salary: £48,308 - £55,241 per annum (Incl.LWA)

Department: Westminster Business School

With a history that dates back to 1838 and a unique place in London’s educational landscape, we have a reputation for inclusiveness and for providing a transformative student experience. You will be based at the University’s Marylebone site, opposite Baker Street Station, centrally located and immersed in London’s business community. We see London as very much part of our field of enquiry; it offers opportunities for staff and students to work closely with outside organisations in the private, public and not-for-profit sectors.

The post sits within the newly established School of Organisations, Economy and Society, a constituent part of Westminster Business School which has an exceptional reputation for practice-informed teaching and research. You will become part of a community of around 60 academic staff with a shared focus on the development, operation and leadership of responsible and sustainable organisations in an international context. This is an exciting time to join us as we extend our portfolio of courses and research activity in Entrepreneurship and Enterprise, Leadership and Sustainable Business. The School hosts a flagship MSc in Entrepreneurship, Innovation and Enterprise Development, alongside Masters’ courses in International Business and Management, HRM, Economics and Development Management, as well an AMBA-accredited MBA. We have a thriving portfolio of undergraduate courses including a popular BA Business Management-Entrepreneurship. 

We are looking to recruit a dynamic, creative and innovative individual who can contribute to the design and delivery of undergraduate and postgraduate courses in Entrepreneurship, broadly defined, undertake high quality research and contribute to our academic enterprise activities. Given the particular focus of our specialist postgraduate programme, individuals with a background in marketing or innovation are also encouraged to apply. As a Senior Lecturer, the post holder will be expected to take on leadership roles at module or course level as determined by the needs of the School, and manage, motivate and act as a mentor to junior colleagues.

You will hold a Doctorate in a relevant area (or have equivalent qualifications and/or experience), will have teaching experience and a recognised teaching qualification or HEA Fellowship, evidence of the ability to produce good quality research publications and have a well-established personal reputation and professional standing. Applications are particularly invited from individuals able to credibly combine exceptional academic expertise and hands-on experience of entrepreneurship and inovation.
