The University of Westminster is one of the leading providers of construction related higher education programmes in the country.  We have an excellent track record in producing high calibre graduates, many of who now occupy senior positions with consultants and contractors, and in the public sector. We are climbing external ranking tables and are making innovative changes to our digital and international dimensions.

You will have academic qualifications in a relative field, appropriate experience in the construction industry or its associated professions, and full membership of a related Professional Body. Academic experience is not essential, but you will have outstanding communication skills and a commitment to excellence and innovation in learning and teaching, putting student experience at the heart of everything you do. 

As a Senior Lecturer, you will be expected to develop and lead modules and work closely with Course Leaders and other members of the course team. You will initiate and manage the development of teaching materials, methods and assessments and where appropriate develop, mentor and coordinate the work of less experienced colleagues to ensure that teaching is delivered to high quality standards. Duties will include marking and giving feedback, acting as a personal tutor and mentor and providing pastoral support to students. You will also be expected to engage in subject, professional or pedagogic research, industry liaison or other scholarly activities to support your teaching.
