Our organisational strategy is aligned with the United Nation’s Sustainable Development Goals and our globally recognised researchers advise governments, industry and international bodies. We’re ranked fifth in the world and first in the UK for promoting gender equality, 69th globally for social impact, and the top modern university in Scotland for research power. In 2020-21, we contributed £1.7 billion and more than 14,000 jobs across the globe.

GCU is committed to widening participation, delivering positive outcomes for our students, and we’re Scotland’s leading provider of Graduate Apprenticeships.

Guided by our inspirational Chancellor, Dr Annie Lennox OBE, and guided by our values – integrity, responsibility, creativity and confidence - we transform the lives of the people and communities we serve.

An opportunity has arisen to join us as a Lecturer in Human Resource Management. The role is based within the Department of Management and HRM, located within Glasgow School for Business and Society. The Department delivers a wide range of programmes in the area of International Business Management, HRM, Operations and Supply Chain Management, and Social Innovation. Our HRM programmes and modules are delivered at both undergraduate and postgraduate levels. The highly successful MSc HRM and MSc International HRM programmes are fully accredited by the Chartered Institute of Personnel and Development and aligned to the US Society for Human Resource Management (SHRM) standards and the MSc International HRM is recognised by the Australian Human Resources Institute.

The applicant should have the expertise and flexibility to participate in delivering a range of modules across general HRM topics, as well as an interest in some of the following areas: performance management and reward, data analytics, HRD, leadership and diversity.  An interest in teaching research methods and experience/understanding of quantitative research in particular, will also be welcomed. Experience of teaching, assessment and student supervision within a blended-learning environment is desirable. You should also have experience of supervising student research dissertations, and have a genuine interest in participating in the professional development of students by engaging in academic advising/personal tutoring and/or placement supervision.

Applicants should either be qualified to doctorate level within the Human Resource Management discipline or hold a relevant Masters qualification and be very near to completion of their doctorate (e.g - within 3 months of submission). In addition, applicants must be able to demonstrate a commitment to the publication of research in their chosen field.

Applicants are expected to have excellent communication, planning and organisational skills. You should also be able to demonstrate a student-centred approach and an ability to work in a collaborative manner with colleagues.   Successful applicants will be expected to undertake a teaching qualification if not already qualified.

All applicants must complete the online application form detailing how they meet the essential and desirable requirement for the role. A covering letter (1 page) and a short CV may also be included.
