We have some exciting opportunities for General Animal Management Lecturers to join the current teams at the Hadlow and Mottingham Campuses, delivering a range of animal management courses to both Further and Higher Education students.

The successful candidates will need practical experience in an animal care industry plus teaching experience in a practical and/or classroom setting.  A keen interest in a wide range of animal related subjects is essential, as is a qualification in an animal related subject. There are also opportunities for those with a vet nursing background, to support our veterinary nursing students. In addition to the minimum requirements detailed above, candidates will also need a teaching qualification.

Applicants must show proof of a minimum Level 2 or equivalent in maths and English. Excellent communication, team work and IT skills are a must.  Experience delivering Animal Behaviour and related subjects at Higher Education level would be advantageous. Qualifications Certificates in Assessing Vocational Achievement and A1/A2 (or D32 and D33) would also be advantageous.

In addition to the minimum requirements detailed above, candidates will also need a teaching qualification or the willingness to work towards one. Support is given to those who wish to train and as they work for the qualification, staff will receive a bonus of £600.00 in the third year and £750.00 in their fourth year, providing they have successfully gained their full teaching qualification at Hadlow College.

As well as a contributory pension scheme, health cash plan, salary sacrifice scheme and free car parking, these posts also attract 35 days holiday each year, pro rata for part time (excluding bank holidays).

The successful candidates will be required to undertake an Enhanced Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS) Check and provide proof of their right to work in the UK. Where applicable, a prohibition check will be carried out.
