Job description

Manchester Metropolitan University Business School is a triple accredited business school (EQUIS, AACSB and AMBA), placing us within a global elite of institutions for business education and research. We offer a full range of programmes to c. 10,000 students across undergraduate, postgraduate and MBA qualifications. We are also the UK's sector leader for degree apprenticeships, where we work in partnership with a number of blue chip employers. The last five years have also seen a tripling of our research active staff, and a rapid upward trajectory in all key research metrics.


The Department of Marketing, Retail and Tourism is on an ambitious course to strengthen its profile as an inclusive and highly renowned department of marketing professional practice and research for places and the service sectors.


Enhancing our excellence around pillars of strength – the Institute of Place Management (IPM), consumer behaviour, digital marketing, retail, tourism – we deliver educational and research outcomes that respond to the national and global post-Covid revitalisation of the service sectors and local economies, and the big global challenges of sustainability, digital futures and industry 4.0.


Accredited by major professional bodies and embedded proudly in the dynamic and vibrant Manchester city region and with global networks, our vision is to create an integrated and impactful marketing knowledge and graduate pipeline that transforms lives, businesses and communities.


We are looking to appoint a Lecturer in Retail (Finance) to help drive forward our successful portfolio of Marketing and Retail courses and shape the next generation of digital marketing professionals.
