Who is Staffordshire University? 

Staffordshire University is an award-winning institution with over 100 years’ experience in delivering excellent higher education. Our main Stoke-on-Trent campus is located in the heart of the UK, with Centres of Excellence located in the towns of Stafford and Shrewsbury.

After a highly successful year in 2019, which included entering THE World University rankings for the first time, securing TEF Gold, and climbing in all the league tables, our University has constantly expanded its physical presence through new and industry-leading building developments and facilities. Looking towards our 2030 strategy, we are now transforming specific business processes to improve the student experience and integrate a wider feeling of inclusion and safety for our on-campus community.

About the role 

We are seeking a brilliant, friendly, ambitious and inspirational person to join the Policing team in the Department of Criminology, Policing and Forensic Science as a Lecturer or Senior Lecturer (dependent on experience) in Policing. We are seeking someone with an investigative background, which could be related to police investigations or investigations conducted by any other investigative agency or organisation.

We deliver two very successful traditional undergraduate courses: BSc (Hons) Professional Policing (our College of Policing accredited pre-join degree) and BSc (Hons) Policing and Criminal Investigation. Increasingly the Police engage with partner agencies on criminal investigations, so we are extending the scope of the BSc (Hons) Policing and Criminal Investigation to reflect the growing complexity of multi-agency investigations. Applicants will therefore have knowledge and experience of conducting investigations. Ideally, applicants will also be able to evidence knowledge of, and involvement in, digital aspects of investigations and have a broad awareness of cybercrime.  

The successful applicant will work well within a team and will possess excellent communication skills. The successful applicant will be expected to work towards a teaching qualification.
