The University of Lincoln’s National Centre for Food Manufacturing is a major resource for the UK’s food manufacturing sector delivering skills, research, and support for innovation in partnership with over 250 leading food businesses. We require a Lecturer / Senior Lecturer in Food Operations and Supply Chain Management to inspire our students. You must have significant experience of working within an operations/supply chain management role, ideally in the UK’s Food Industry and a passion for developing the skills of teams and individuals. Whilst experience of teaching is highly desirable, it is not essential, and the role would suit an industry professional looking for a career change and an opportunity to share their knowledge and experience to benefit others.

The NCFM is a satellite campus of the University of Lincoln head-quartered on the South Lincolnshire Food Enterprise Zone in Holbeach in South Lincolnshire. Part of the Lincolnshire Institute of Technology (IoT) the NCFM has outstanding sector-focused facilities, including a state-of-the-art food factory demonstrating cutting edge food automation, a Digital Food Manufacturing Technologies Centre and flagship Centre of Excellence in Agri-food Technologies. Our clients include Coca-Cola, Bakkavor, Kraft Heinz, Nestle and other leading businesses

All our students are apprentices who study part-time, with distance learning supported by block release the platform for delivery. The role involves teaching, apprenticeship support, curriculum and quality management and working with employers to support apprentices. Our apprenticeships span Level 3 to Level 7, and you will teach across all levels as well as on short courses and other programmes.  As a Senior Lecturer you will play a key role in shaping Supply Chain apprenticeships for years to come, working with businesses across the UK to build an offer that will both raise the skills levels of existing employees and attract young people into the industry.

The post holder will also contribute to the NCFM’s applied research and innovation agenda, supporting the delivery of research projects and practical trials.

You will be part of a dynamic team of professionals who are adept at working with businesses and supporting apprentices.

The post is offered on a Teaching and Professional Practice contract and is focused on teaching mostly part-time students and curriculum leadership, practical projects and trials. The post is not suitable for individuals seeking a role which is predominantly research focused or concerned with standard delivery of full-time undergraduate and postgraduate provision.

Please note that this post requires an Enhanced DBS check.
