This is an enviable opportunity to shape and nurture the future of research at a business school with a history of fresh thinking – and ambitious plans for growth.

The centre of new ideas, the foundation of excellence

Westminster Business School is one of the largest University business schools in the UK, with a turnover exceeding £45 million and more than 350 full-time and visiting staff. We’re renowned for the strength of our professional practice focus, which is built on superb corporate connections, the success of our executive education portfolio, the impact of our research and the number of professional accreditations we hold. 

2017 is set to be a pivotal year for us – creating five new professorships and a range of additional strategic posts. There’s a real sense of excitement about the investment in the School and the phenomenal potential it opens up. We see this as the start of a new chapter in our story. You can be there at the outset to play your part.

Your role - Professor of Human Resources Management
Our department of Human Resource Management is a CIPD Centre, with a close relationship with the HR profession and strong links with bodies like the British Psychological Society and the British Universities Industrial Relations Association. Our academic and research interests span the range of international and human resources management and HR professional practice. You will focus on enhancing our research capacity and ensuring the HR world values our research for its real world applications. We will also look to you to inspire and mentor research-active colleagues, while attracting new sources of research income.

Your profile
You will need to bring a PhD, A1:U5 successful academic background and, ideally, relevant industry experience. You will certainly be a recognised expert in the field, with a record of publishing internationally-leading research and generating significant income. An inspiring educator and mentor, you will also have experience of delivering high-quality teaching at undergraduate and postgraduate level.
