Location: Manchester, ENGLAND
Job Type: FullTime
Deadline: 10 Dec 2021

Based in our Manchester Study Centre with opportunity for agile working


Arden University is growing and as part of that growth we are expanding the Computing team. This is an exciting opportunity to join at a time when we are creating programmes to meet the needs of employers and the graduates of the future. You’ll join a team of Lecturers and Senior Lecturers distributed across study centres but working collectively to create the best experience for our students. Reporting to a Programme Leader, you will play a vital part in designing and delivering our undergraduate and postgraduate programmes and in return we will offer you opportunities for development and progression within our academic structure.

About You:

An excellent communicator who can explain Computing concepts to a variety of audiences, you will inspire and engage our students in their course materials with your experience of application in industry and support them in their development with constructive feedback on their work. Our undergraduate and postgraduate Computing programmes cover topics such as Programming, Databases, Data Analysis, IT Security, Cloud Infrastructure, IT Project Management, Systems Analysis and Ethics in IT. As such, you will need to demonstrate an ability to deliver across a range of theory-based and practical modules and be comfortable with languages and platforms such as Java, MySQL, PHP, AWS/Azure, Python and SPSS. You will be confident in using a variety of techniques that engage students in active learning, in both face-to-face teaching at our study centres and online teaching platforms such as Zoom. As a module leader, you will ensure that modules are delivered consistently and to our University standards, so experience in leading academic teams is essential.

The Faculty of Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics

Each and every one of us has the power to change the World: to save the planet, to provide clean water and nutritious food to all, to end poverty and build a global inclusive culture. Whether you are looking to change the World or simply make life a little better for your family and friends, a STEM qualification will equip you with the tools, techniques and mindset to start to tackle these challenges. Industries around the World are looking for talented STEM graduates to develop the technologies of the future whilst at the same time ensure that these are sustainable and have a positive impact on our environment.

It is an incredibly exciting time to be joining Arden University, at the creation of its new STEM Faculty. Within this faculty the School of Computing offers undergraduate and postgraduate programmes that are designed with flexibility in mind. We know that our learners are already busy people, so Arden’s teaching and learning model enables them to engage with our courses and degree programmes via distance learning or via a combination of online delivery and face-to-face delivery at a learning centre near them. This delivery model enables our learners to balance their personal commitments with their professional aspirations.

If you are hard-working and excited to contribute to the development of our new Faculty of STEM, we want to hear from you!

Arden’s values: Stand out, Progressive, Accessible, Resourceful, Kindness, reflect who we are as an institution, a team and as individuals.
