WMG is a global venture and provides innovative solutions to industry, having an international reputation supporting some of the most advanced research, development and education programmes in the world. WMG has been awarded the Queen’s Anniversary Prize for long term educational partnerships with industry.

Underpinned by the quality of its research, WMG offers a wide range of MSc courses for full-time students and for company-based senior managers from companies such as Airbus, GlaxoSmithKline, JLR, Network Rail, Rolls Royce and UTC. We have extensive collaborative partnerships around the world and teach programmes in ten international centres across Europe and the Far East.

As part of our continuing expansion and development we are looking to strengthen our Supply Chain and Operations Management team by recruiting two Senior Teaching Fellows. Initially one role will focus on Logistics and Operations Management, and the other on Procurement and Inventory Management, but you will be expected to support the teaching offerings of the broader group as you become more established.

You will be involved in the design, organisation, delivery, management and administration of teaching programmes up to MSc level, in addition to the supervision of Project Students up to Doctoral level (depending on qualifications) in a multidisciplinary collaborative environment. Teaching may involve full-time Masters students, part-time masters students, or bespoke programmes designed for industry clients.

You should be qualified to at least degree level in an engineering or related discipline and have more than five years relevant experience in a range of supply-chain and/or operations management roles. You will also need to be versatile, possess excellent communication and presentation skills and be able to work and collaborate as part of a flexible, responsive team. You should have some experience of teaching groups of students and working in a University environment. In return we can offer a dynamic and challenging environment at the interface with industry, and an opportunity to teach leading edge courses in the UK and overseas.

We will provide a great range of benefits which include an attractive pension scheme, 30 days holiday plus bank holidays and Christmas closure, some fantastic savings on a wide range of products and services, and excellent learning and development opportunities.

Please state which role you would like to be considered for on your application form. (If you are happy to be considered for both, please state your preferred role.)
