Opening Date:

Closing Date:
14 Aug 2022
Salary Range:

We are currently recruiting a number of Lecturers in Policing to support our growing portfolio of policing awards. We are delivering a number of academic awards designed to provide qualification routes for police constables; having been awarded the contract to work in collaboration with our local force, South Yorkshire Police.

You will make a substantial contribution to the development and delivery of these courses, and this will involve elements of both online and face to face teaching. You will be part of an academic tutor network, supporting learners both at the university and in the workplace. You will need to work across more than one course and will be expected to write and deliver modules for:

  • A degree-level apprenticeship, linked to achievement of a degree in professional policing
  • A pre-join undergraduate degree in professional policing
  • A programme for entry to the policing profession by graduates with a first degree other than the above.

You must have a well-developed current knowledge and understanding of critical, practical and theoretical issues relevant to policing and the ability to inspire, enthuse and connect with a range of stakeholders e.g. students and external clients from a wide range of backgrounds. A good honours degree in a relevant subject or equivalent professional qualification or significant experience in a relevant discipline and a postgraduate qualification and/or substantial professional experience in a relevant discipline is essential.

Applications will be welcome on an individual basis from applicants who are serving police officers or police staff on a Career Break or Secondment basis; subject to force support and approval.

We welcome applications for job-share, part-time and flexible working arrangements.

For this job we particularly welcome applications from minority ethnic applicants who are underrepresented in this area.

The University may be able to sponsor the employment of international applicants in this role; this will depend on a number of factors specific to the individual applicant.
