Middlesex University, London, is recruiting two Lecturers in Fashion Communication (0.8FTE and 1FTE) to join the academic team of the BA Fashion Communication and Styling programme. We are looking for someone with experience and knowledge of the fast-changing landscape of fashion communications, including an understanding of the impact of new technologies, and social and economic shifts, that are influencing fashion and the wider creative industries, both as a practitioner and with experience of teaching and assessment at higher education level.
The ideal candidate will have some previous experience of academic administration, organising skills-based workshops, providing one-to-one and group tutorials, and assessing students’ work.
You will be joining an established team of academics and technicians delivering a variety of undergraduate fashion degrees to a very diverse student cohort in the Faculty of Arts and Creative Industries at a London university. Fashion is well-established at Middlesex University, with three BA programmes (BA Fashion Design, BA Fashion Textiles and Design, and BA Fashion Communication and Styling), underpinned by a Fashion Foundation Year. The facilities at our Hendon campus are second to none.
We particularly welcome applications from women and gender non-conforming individuals and people from a Black, Asian and Minority Ethnic Backgrounds to join the team and help shape the future of fashion education.
All recruitment decisions will be based on merit. A higher degree in fashion communication or a related subject, and a relevant teaching qualification or accreditation are desirable, but not essential.
