The opportunity

The Design School is looking to recruit a Lecturer for the BA Design Management course.

The course explores the strategic and cultural value of design theory and practice in the context of diverse organisations. This is an exciting opportunity for a candidate with strategic approaches to design management practice and theory with a focus on strategic design, in particular design leadership. The position invites applicants who are keen to think strategically through design practice, utilizing design process and design theory as drivers for cultural and design leadership and change.

As a lecturer you will be responsible to the Course Leader for the delivery of the design management units on the course, focusing on the relationship between theory and practice leading to design leadership. You will bring research and/or industry and teaching experience at the undergraduate level. You will manage and participate in the delivery of student-centred and inclusive teaching and contribute to course development, assessment, quality management and student recruitment.

About you

Previous applicants should not re-apply

We are looking for an individual with a qualification at the undergraduate or postgraduate level relevant to design management. You will have knowledge of delivering creative projects in a professional environment and experience in a range of specialist skills in design management, design thinking, social enterprise and design leadership. You will also have comprehensive knowledge of learning and teaching for international students.

As an academic, previous teaching experience at the undergraduate level is essential in addition to the experience of research and/or professional practice in design leadership or equivalent design practice. You will also be able to cite examples of the design management industry’s future trajectory and engagement with culturally diverse contexts. You should also demonstrate insight into design leadership practices as they intersect with social justice, the climate emergency and other global social, cultural, environmental, political and economic forces that are transforming the design discipline.

The successful candidate should possess effective interpersonal skills and be a student-centred teacher focused on promoting diversity and inclusivity while demonstrating strong communication and organisational skills. We are looking for applicants who can work collaboratively with colleagues to develop the subject area and share expertise.

If you have any queries about this role or need any reasonable adjustments for your application, please contact Lesley Wilkins, Resourcing Adviser, lcc.jobs@lcc.arts.ac.uk or telephone: 020 7514 7985
