Criminology Lecturer

Who are we?

The University of Law is one of the UK’s largest law schools and has trained more lawyers than anyone else. We combine years of experience with a modern fresh approach focused on ensuring our students achieve their career ambitions. Our success is built on continual innovation, and making sure we reflect the needs of today’s employers.

What are we looking for?

We are building on our current expertise in Criminal Justice, with a view to developing a range of new and exciting programmes in the areas of criminology, policing and miscarriages of justice.  We are looking for someone to play a key role in broadening our understanding of criminal behaviour, working with our legal experts, including former solicitors and barristers, as well as staff previously holding senior police roles, and an investigative journalist. The focus of this new role is high quality programme design and delivery and practical research.   

You will enjoy being challenged (by students and course content in equal measure) and be able to adapt to the different learning styles of students and methods of course delivery.  You will be eager to share your expertise and become involved in all aspects of enhancing the student experience within our campuses, primarily teaching on our LLB programmes.  Please note that classes are also routinely delivered over weekends and evenings and lecturers are expected to work flexibly within these parameters.

We offer an excellent range of competitive benefits including 35 days annual leave, private medical insurance, pension scheme, life assurance, training and qualifications and travel loans. As part of the tutor development programme, we will also support you to study for a recognised teaching qualification within your first 18 months of employment.
