The University of Law

Academic Manager

The University of Law is one of the UK’s leading providers of legal education and training, working right at the heart of the legal profession. We bring together teaching of the highest quality, a focus on practical skills and innovative learning styles to deliver perfect preparation for life in legal practice and ongoing professional development.

We are in an ongoing, exciting period of growth and expansion, as a result of that we are looking for outstanding people to join our committed and passionate team of professionals.

We are looking for an individual with people management experience to use their skills to manage and develop a team of Tutors and Associate Academics to enhance the experience of the ULaw Online students by ensuring high quality teaching is delivered. You will also be able to work with the management team to ensure effective use of staff resource.

You will be passionate about education, believe that the student experience should be second to none and are excited about using technology to do that.  You do not need teaching experience – we will provide all the training you need – but you must be invested in delivering the highest standard of legal education, using existing and emerging technology.

You will be a qualified lawyer with proven successful people management skills supported by a desire to help our students achieve their own career goals.  We are looking for someone who will tutor students but, in addition, enjoy managing and developing teams.

ULaw Online campus staff will be home-based, but may be required to attend our Manchester hub and/or other campuses approximately twice per month.

We offer an excellent range of competitive benefits including 35 days annual leave, private medical insurance and life assurance.  As part of the tutor development programme, we will also support you to study for a recognised teaching qualification within your first 18 months of employment.
