We are looking for people keen to be part of a team delivering high-quality EAP teaching within a well-established pre-sessional programme with a long and successful track record. You will be employed on a full-time basis, normally teaching up to 18 contact hours a week within a supportive working environment at one of the world’s leading universities and in a vibrant and cosmopolitan city.

Induction for the ten-week course will take place on Thursday 15 June and Friday 16 June; induction for the five-week course will take place on Thursday 20 July and Friday 21 July. Successful applicants will be engaged from the date of induction and must be available to work from this date.

Job Salary & Benefits

The grade salary range is £27,629 to £38,183 per annum. Individual appointments will be dependent on qualifications and experience and on to which of the two roles you are appointed.
