Staffordshire University is on a journey to become the foremost modern higher education institution in the UK, with an international reputation for excellence, and we are looking for inspirational and effective people to take us to the next stage.

In 2018 we broke into the World University rankings for the first time and were named as a top 50 UK university by the Guardian. The quality of our student experience has placed us in the top 10 for teaching quality in the Sunday Times Good University Guide 2018 and 2019 and we are on track to achieve a Gold rating in the Teaching Excellence Framework.

Many of our students come from areas with low rates of participation in higher education and we continually strive to ensure the courses we offer meet the needs of people and employers. We are expanding our non-traditional, flexible study options, particularly in degree apprenticeships serving the public sector.

We currently have Lecturer and Senior Lecturer opportunities and you can join us at a time when we begin the next step of our transformation journey. The new £40m Catalyst Building will deliver 6,500 new degree apprentices in the next decade, boosting both the local and national economy. The development of our offer to new academic areas and geographic locations will see us expand our reach and make an innovative offer to a new generation of students.

We are a university of and for our community: local, national and global. If you share our values and have the skills to deliver our vision, we want to hear from you.

Post-holders will join our team to deliver undergraduate and postgraduate degrees in our Policing courses, specifically in relation to our Policing Apprenticeships, as well as providing support to other routes as required. We have recently announced a major new partnership to deliver police constable education and training for West Midlands, Staffordshire, West Mercia and Warwickshire police forces.

We are seeking individuals with knowledge and experience across broad specialisms including core Policing concepts and skills and/or Criminology. We are particularly keen in individuals with expertise in Digitally Enabled Crimes, Road Policing, and Intelligence and Security, although we welcome applications from people with other specialisms too. Whether you have developed your expertise through an academic route of with one of the UK’s Police Forces we want to hear from you.

You will have a commitment to developing and delivering high-quality teaching, have excellent communication skills and an ability to work effectively as part of a high performing team of academic staff. 

Policing sits within our School of Law, Policing and Forensics, a unique combination of disciplines that is ideally placed to respond to today’s justice system. You will work closely with colleagues from other academic disciplines including law, criminology, forensic science and others across the wider university community.

Due to the nature of the Police Apprenticeships, the successful candidates will be required to travel across the West Midlands Region (covering the four police forces – Staffordshire Police, West Midlands Police, West Mercia Police, and Warwickshire Police) in order to deliver material. Therefore, mobility is required for this position.

We can also offer flexible work patterns including part-time hours, home-working and remote working.
