Job Description

Do you want to play a key role in developing and enhancing the School of Law’s educational programmes and student experience predominantly at undergraduate level? Are you an exceptional teacher with a strong commitment to enhancing the student experience? Do you want to be part of a thriving law school in a Russell Group University?

The School of Law is one of the leading centres for research in law and criminology in the UK. We are, however, equally proud of our reputation for providing an excellent student experience at both undergraduate and postgraduate level. We are now investing further to the value added support we offer our students on our programmes to ensure that they remain among the best in the Russell Group and are seeking to appoint a number of high calibre individuals to help us. 

Working with the Director of Student Education, academic and professional services colleagues, you will be centrally involved in the development and dissemination of skills training, both academic and transferable, for our students as well as delivering some teaching. You will work with our students in groups and on a one to one basis to identify what they need in order to thrive at Leeds. You will be centrally involved in the utilisation of metrics to provide personalised advice and will be part of a team that works with our students to allow them to fulfil their full potential on their course and after they leave us.

The School of Law values an inclusive working and teaching environment and our aim is to develop a diverse staff and student community reflective of this. We select candidates on the basis of merit and ability and aspire to further diversify our School and Faculty community. We particularly welcome applications from candidates belonging to groups that have been under-represented in the University including, but not limited to: Black, Asian and ethnically diverse people, people who identify as LGBTQ+, and disabled people.
