Lecturer in Animal Management (Further Education)

37 hours per week

Hartpury College is one of the UK’s leading sports and land based residential colleges. It has become one of the largest in the sector with outstanding teaching and sporting facilities. Over 3500 full time Further and Higher education students study at our attractive rural campus in Gloucestershire.

We are looking to appoint a new member of staff to join an enthusiastic team, teaching students on our Further Education animal-related courses at levels two and three. The successful applicant will be driven and self-motivated and integral in maintaining the high standards set within the department.  You will need to have a thorough knowledge of a wide range of animals and have good links with industry; we would particularly welcome applications from those with knowledge and experience in animal behaviour, communication, welfare and breed development.

You will be expected to deliver exceptional teaching which will assist students to achieve excellent results. You will be able to inspire students to appreciate and enjoy Animal Management, instilling in them a passion for the subject and a desire to develop their understanding.  In addition, you will be a personal tutor, advising and guiding individuals in their progress, success and career aspirations.

Ideally, you will possess an HND or equivalent qualification in Animal Science/Management or a related subject and have a teaching qualification, although this is not essential and if our chosen candidate does not have a teaching qualification, our comprehensive staff development scheme will support this. 

We offer excellent benefits including a comprehensive continuous professional development programme, 35 days annual leave entitlement plus bank holidays, onsite fitness facilities, free onsite parking and lots more.

We are committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people and expect all staff and volunteers to share this commitment.  We will ensure that all our recruitment and selection practices reflect this commitment.  All successful candidates will be subject to Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS) checks along with other relevant employment checks.

Potential interview date of Thursday 10th May 2018.
