Our welcoming community of 20,000 students, from more than 100 countries, enjoy a wide range of award-winning support services and state of the art facilities across each of our campuses in Glasgow, London and New York. Our University mission - with its commitment to the Common Good and core values of integrity, creativity, responsibility and confidence - is integral to everything we do.
An opportunity has arisen to join us as a Part Time Lecturer in Tourism and Events. Based in the Glasgow School for Business and Society, you will join the Department of Fashion, Marketing, Tourism and Events; a group of academics and practitioners with a focus on ‘real-world’ teaching, research, business and community engagement. We are seeking an enthusiastic and experienced academic practitioner to make a significant contribution to teaching and research in Tourism and Events. The Department offers International Tourism and Events Management programmes at UG and PG level and is ranked top in Scotland by the Guardian University Guide, 2020 and eleventh in the UK by the Complete University Guide, 2021. The programmes benefit further from alignment with the GSBS based Moffat Centre for Travel and Tourism Business Development.
The post would suit someone with a well-connected background in operating and managing tourism and events activities, including significant experience in financial aspects of the business. You should be capable of teaching financial decision making, revenue management, and sourcing of finance in the context of strategic management in tourism and events. High level skills in quantitative research analysis would also be desirable.
You should be adept in the use of blended learning technologies, including for online delivery and be able to teach theory and practical applications at undergraduate and postgraduate level, contextualised as required across tourism and events. Supervision of UG and PG projects and dissertations is also an expected part of the role.
Ideally you will possess a doctoral level qualification, or be within one year of completion, in which case a relevant Masters will also be required. As well as lecturing experience in a university environment, you should have a proven record of recent research activities and outputs relevant to the post and will be able to contribute to the research profile of the department. Excellent communication, planning and organisational skills are necessary for the role as well as a collegiate and collaborative approach.
