King’s College London is an internationally renowned university, dedicated to driving positive and sustainable change in society and realising our vision of making the world a better place. King’s College London is ranked 11th in the world and 2nd in the UK in the Times Higher Education Impact Rankings. Our ambitions are reflected in King’s Strategy 2026.  

This commitment is embodied by King’s Business School that has been on a rapid, upwards trajectory, and now serves over 3,500 students representing over 80 different nationalities and comprises around 170 faculty. In the last year King’s Business School has achieved double accreditation from AACSB and EQUIS, achieved a top decile REF 2021 result, and been ranked 5th/123 in the Complete University Guide 2023.   

Delivering a transformative education is central to the faculty’s ambitions. Therefore, we are looking for high quality people with a track record in outstanding student engagement, employability initiatives and pedagogic scholarship to join our exceptional team. The School places a premium on delivering excellence in teaching and learning and so you will be expected to play a role in the enhancement of our educational practice. 

Given this role is on our Academic Education Pathway (AEP), the successful candidate will be expected to contribute to excellent teaching and take a leading role in the development of our undergraduate and postgraduate programmes - especially in the quality assurance processes and in embedding work-related learning, experiential and authentic assessment and graduate attributes into our curriculum. We are looking to recruit a candidate who will work with our Work-related Learning Manager to oversee the delivery of employer-related provision within the School’s curriculum.  

The role will work closely with the careers team to utilise data on student demographics, career readiness and graduate outcomes to sponsor and take the academic lead in a programme of work-related learning activities with external partners that will prepare our students for the world of work. The role holder will be expected to engage and lead teaching innovations that shape and transform the learning experience of our students and delivers student success and outstanding graduate outcomes.  

Please note that given that this appointment is on our Academic Education Pathway (AEP). Candidates with significant research outputs and profile, but with limited evidence of excellence in their educational practice and knowledge of experiential learning and innovative pedagogic practice are unlikely to be shortlisted. This is an education-focused appointment and candidates will be expected to evidence significant leadership and impact in transforming and enhancing education and student outcomes within an HE context. 

We particularly welcome applications from black and minority ethnic candidates as they are currently under-represented within the faculty at this level.   

This post will be offered on an indefinite contract
