The University is pursuing a strategic plan that emphasises industry collaboration and ‘real world' learning: education for employment, research for the real world, and exceptional partnership with business. As an institution, we are committed to delivering an excellent student experience focused on student success and ensuring that every student we recruit has equality of opportunity.

A bit about the Salford Business School…

Salford Business School plays a central role in delivering the University strategy and has a clearly articulated aim to:

  • provide an outstanding student experience through impactful and innovative teaching, learning and assessment underpinned by personalised support and tailored stretch;
  • be a valued partner to industry and our region through the co-creation of innovative solutions to real-world problems;
  • collaborate in interdisciplinary research and enterprise activity
  • Our mission is to empower our diverse community of learners by inspiring curiosity, building confidence, and nurturing resilience to support every individual's personal and professional journey. Through education, enterprise, and applied research, we connect to industry, to the future, to our region and, through our partners, across the globe

    Our vision is to foster the next generation of leaders and a new vision of innovative and entrepreneurial leadership that integrates people, values and the digital in order to meet the challenges and opportunities of a sustainable future.

    Salford Business School has around 130 staff and circa. 4,000 learners in Salford, with as many again studying with our regional and overseas partners. Salford Business School is at the forefront of expanding opportunity and access in higher education. With a strong focus on the student experience, we are committed to excellent, inclusive teaching that prepares our students for professional employment and inspires them to achieve their ambitions. We deliver across a range of subject areas and are currently expanding provision through new partnerships and a developing portfolio of higher and degree apprenticeships.

    Salford Business School is now looking for a Lecturer in Accounting to join a team of experienced accounting teaching staff. The candidate must be able to teach across the accounting teaching programme. It would also be advantageous if they had a specialism to offer with the range of specialisms including but not exclusive to financial accounting and reporting, corporate finance, taxation and audit and assurance. We are also keen to hear from anyone who may have experience in accounting software training and an awareness of current trends in accounting and finance including around fintech, data analytics, social and environmental accounting and artificial intelligence. Teaching experience is an essential, a professional accounting qualification a desirable requirement.

    So, what will the role involve?

  • Design teaching material and deliver either across a range of modules, set, mark and assess work
  • Supervise student projects, including, where appropriate, PGT, field trips and placements

  • Identify areas where current provision is in need of revision or enhancement

  • Extend, transform and apply knowledge acquired from scholarship to learning, research and where appropriate external activities

  • What's in it for you?

    With over 200 languages spoken across Greater Manchester, we want to create an inspirational, inclusive learning and working environment, celebrating the diversity of our University community in our everyday conversations. Our student population is already incredibly diverse and we want to ensure this is reflected across our colleague profile as well.

    There is a varied benefits package available through ‘MySalford' where you can tailor your benefits to suit your own lifestyle. To maintain work/life balance, when appropriate you can connect to work from wherever you are, flexibility on working from home is supported where possible, however the role will be based on the University of Salford campus.

    However you identify, whatever your pathway has been to get here, come and join us at the University of Salford where we are all proud to belong - watch us in action here!

    For more information or an informal conversation please contact Subject Head, Dr Chris Kelsall; c.a.kelsall@salford.ac.uk.
