Newcastle Business School, Northumbria University is one of few business schools worldwide that have double AACSB accreditation for both Business and Accounting. We have an outstanding reputation in the delivery of business relevant programmes that are underpinned by research.

Northumbria's improvement in the 2014 Research Excellence Framework for research power was reported as being the biggest in the country, and within our Business and Management submission over 60% of our Impact was assessed as either world leading or internationally excellent. Many of our business programmes have EPAS accreditation from the European Foundation for Management Development and/or enjoy professional accreditation from a range of highly regarded professional bodies such as the Chartered Institute of Logistics and Transport (UK) [CILT UK] and the Chartered Institute of Procurement and Supply (CIPS). In 2015, Newcastle Business School won the prestigious Times Higher Education “Business School of the Year” award.

Working within the Department of Marketing, Operations and Systems, you will join a team of highly qualified academics with a passion for enhancing the student experience. As a senior Academic colleague, you will assist the Faculty Pro Vice-Chancellor to maintain, enhance and improve the University’s national and international reputation in your academic field. You must demonstrate continuing academic attainment and achievement and provide academic leadership (of your subject and associated colleagues), through active contribution to your discipline and to the life and work of the Faculty and the wider University. This will include contributing to significant change within practice, the discipline, profession and/or community at regional, national and international level.

To be successful in this role you will have externally recognised research outputs of a quality that are internationally excellent in terms of originality, significance and rigour, and demonstrable success in securing research funding. You should also demonstrate academic leadership experience and strong standing with external bodies and networks in your field.
