In 2015, the School of Management moved to a new custom-built facility on the Science and Innovation (Bay) Campus, one of the largest ever investments by a UK University in new facilities. The School occupies a beach-front £23 million building, with further campus extension planned.

We are seeking an experienced, engaged, enthusiastic and energetic individual who will provide world-leading, marketing-related contributions to the work of one or more of the School of Management’s research centres as well as make a significant positive contribution to the intellectual life of the group. In addition, the individual should be prepared to contribute to the teaching of the sports pathways referenced above. Extensive academic and professional experience in the theory and practice of marketing and in some aspect of sports management will be essential in order to make an effective contribution to the development, delivery and growth of our BSc and MSc programmes in (Business) Management and (Strategic) Marketing. Experience as a Programme Director or in a similar learning/teaching role would also be advantageous. For further information please contact Prof Sarah Nicholls at
