    Change your career, change lives 
    The Open University is the UK's largest university, a world leader in flexible part-time education combining a mission to widen access to higher education with research excellence, transforming lives through education. 
    The role 
    We are looking to appoint lecturers (AC3) in management in the Department of People and Organisations (DPO), The Open University Business School, Faculty of Business and Law at The Open University. 
    We are looking for candidates who will commit to the OU's social mission of providing socially important, impactful and innovative research and teaching. We are open to a wide range of perspectives and backgrounds that can help advance the School's commitment to pursuing cutting edge thinking on contemporary economic and social issues. Candidates should have teaching experience in Human Resource Management and, ideally, other areas of management including Organisational Behaviour and Organisation Studies.  
    We also strongly encourage applications from academics with experience in apprenticeships, work-based learning and organisational partnerships. A key part of this role will be finding opportunities for establishing knowledge exchange with external organisations and attracting external funding for conducting impactful research. To that end, you will have the opportunity to work closely with a wide range of academics and professional services across the Faculty, University and beyond.
    Responsibilities for this role include:
    • Contributing to the creation of online teaching modules (undergraduate, postgraduate taught and micro-credentials) together with other colleagues
    • Contributing to the presentation of teaching modules (undergraduate, postgraduate taught, postgraduate research and micro-credentials) together with other colleagues, including setting and overseeing of assessment
    • Tutoring at face-to-face residential schools, day schools or their online equivalents, or other forms of direct student contact
    • Undertaking research and publications relevant to Faculty and University priorities
    • Contributing to monitoring of the quality of tuition, assessment and online student support
    Skills and experience 
    You must have a doctorate in a relevant discipline and be able to show a building trajectory of relevant research publications and associated research activity. Your research can be in any of the areas above or other areas which align with or complement the interests of academic staff in the Department of People and Organisations.
    You must also be able to demonstrate a willingness to develop the skills and capabilities required for our unique approach to teaching at all levels. You should demonstrate an ability to engage with a wide range of people: your academic peers, your professional services colleagues, your students and their tutors, within relevant business and professional environments. You will also be able to demonstrate the organisational skills to deal with innovation and change and to manage conflicting demands and meet deadlines. To that end, there will be opportunities to take on academic leadership roles within the faculty and beyond.
    Please also note that we can be flexible on the location of a successful candidate, and would consider hybrid with some travel to Milton Keynes as required as long as they live in the UK. How often academic staff are needed on campus is decided by their line manager and wider Faculty needs.
