University Centre Reaseheath is looking to appoint a highly motivated, driven and enthusiastic team player to join our team of Higher Education lecturers to support delivery of our undergraduate veterinary nursing programme. This is an exciting opportunity to contribute to our success as we continue to grow and develop our curriculum offer. Reporting directly to the Programme Leader, the Lecturer/Course Manager will have direct responsibility for supporting the attainment and continuation of a group of students as well as active responsibility for maintaining academic quality and standards and a high quality student experience.

You should be qualified to a minimum of Level 6 within a related discipline and have relevant and up to date industry/professional practice within the sector and hold registered veterinary nurse status (or professional equivalent). Evidence of relevant scholarly activity that you can use to enhance the student experience would be advantageous. We are particularly interested in receiving applications from individuals with specialist knowledge or experience in clinical animal behaviour, ideally with a canine specialism.
University Centre Reaseheath is set within beautiful campus grounds in the heart of Cheshire. Our undergraduate vet nursing provision is supported through access to excellent facilities in our dedicated veterinary nursing department with specialist practical study areas including clinical skills suite, diagnostic imaging suite and modern laboratories. We also have a working farm set in 330 hectares and a fully licensed zoo and animal management centre housing over 1000 exotic, park and companion animals. Supported by access to these facilities, we are committed to providing industry leading education that equips our undergraduates with the skills they need to grow and progress. We have an ambitious vision for further growth and enhancement of our curriculum offer and we are looking for determined and committed individuals who would like to contribute to our success.
