Are you an academic or broadcast professional looking for an innovative and successful university to take your next step? At NTU, we recognise that our greatest strengths lie in the energy, expertise, and experience that our colleagues bring. NTU is a prize winning, top twenty University. Thanks to our £421million investment in estates and equipment across our three campuses since 2003/4, we deliver an inspirational learning environment for both staff and students. We achieved TEF Gold Standard for the quality of our teaching and in 2018 NTU was proud to be named Modern University of the Year in the Times and Sunday Times Good University Guide. Our research facilities allow us to shape lives and society, which is central to our mission and achievements of our aims.
The School of Arts and Humanities is now looking for an experienced and talented multiplatform journalist to join our dynamic team within the Centre for Broadcasting and Journalism delivering industry-standard skills and knowledge to students across our undergraduate and postgraduate journalism courses. All of our courses are professionally accredited by either the Broadcasting Journalism Training Council (BJTC) or the National Council for the Training of Journalists (NCTJ).
As well as professional experience in broadcasting within digital media, television and radio news, you will have teaching experience at HE level, well-developed knowledge of the journalism industry and allied professions and an awareness of trends and market expectations in the sector. You will be able to contribute to the design and delivery of an evolving curriculum that engages directly with industry and equips our graduates for work. The successful candidate will be fully conversant with the standards of the BJTC. Applicants with a specialism in data journalism, social media, or political journalism are especially welcome.
You will be keen to develop your own skills and knowledge through research, and by maintaining and developing links with news organisations to ensure that the department remains current and in-step with the latest technology and journalism practice. The role requires excellent communication and interpersonal skills as you will support the learning of our students at both undergraduate and postgraduate levels. In addition to this the successful candidate will contribute to the development, assessment and management of academic programmes within the department.
Successful applicants will usually be appointed to the base of the advertised salary grade, except in justifiable circumstances.
