Due to the continuing popularity & growth of our Animal Sciences programmes, we are seeking an enthusiastic and motivated individual to join our team of teaching staff who are genuinely passionate about their subject and about supporting every student to reach their full potential. The successful candidates should expect to deliver across a range of Animal Science subjects, but we would be particularly interested in applicants with experience of the zoo industry.

To be successful, you will hold a higher degree (minimum of Level 7) in Biological Sciences or a related discipline, and ideally have prior teaching experience within the Higher Education sector. In addition, you will have completed, or be working towards completing, a nationally recognised teaching qualification and accreditation with the Higher Education Academy. Formal training will be provided to any successful candidate that does not possess a teaching qualification. 

The role will include the administration for your modules and delivery of formal lectures, practicals, tutorials and seminars, in addition to undertaking final year honours project supervision. You will also be required to implement quality assurance processes and develop new curriculum content that keeps us at the forefront of this evolving discipline.

Reaseheath College’s state-of-the-art Zoo and Animal Centre have won national recognition for excellence – as have our courses that deliver the very best Animal Science education. Following a sustained programme of investment in our facilities, we boast a fantastic range of species & facilities which regularly attract local, national and international recognition. Additionally, Reaseheath College has recently been awarded University Centre status, which is reflected in the growth of delivery and specialist land-based provision working alongside our partner institution, the University of Chester.

Applications are welcomed from passionate and enthusiastic individuals committed to providing our learners with a high-quality experience. You will be able to utilise your knowledge and experience of the discipline in providing a wealth of learning opportunities for our undergraduate students. Good teamworking and communication skills are key attributes within this dynamic team.
