About the School of Business and Management, and the Department of Marketing

The School of Business and Management is one of the eight schools in the Faculty of Humanities and Social Sciences. The School has been undergoing a period of rapid growth, doubling our number of academic staff over the last five years. We presently have 90 academic staff. We have over 1,600 undergraduate business studies students plus approximately 800 students taking business in combination with other degree subjects within QMUL. At the post-graduate level we have approximately 800 MSc students and a well-established doctoral programme of around 80 doctoral students.

SBM’s core purpose is to promote social justice, sustainability and good governance in the management of private, public and voluntary organisations through our research and education. We are a distinctive School that takes a humanities and social science-led approach to our scholarship, including interdisciplinarity and are now the largest school within QMUL’s Faculty of Humanities and Social Sciences, with its traditional strengths as a site of critical thinking in the humanities, law, history, geography and politics.

The Department of Marketing at the School of Business and Management is research-led, but you will note from the job title that this particular role is teaching and scholarship focused. This means the role holder will be expected to focus on education and will not undertake research unless that is associated with pedagogy or other aspects of the student experience. The primary areas of teaching will be on our BSc in Marketing and Management (around 75 students yearly), and our MSc in Marketing (around 200 students yearly).

The starting salary will be Grade 5/6, in the range of £42,433 - £52,833 per annum for those appointed as Lecturer, or in Grade 7, in the range of £55,840 - £62,415 per annum for those appointed as Senior Lecturer, in both cases inclusive of London Allowance.
