Russian Speaking Language Tutor in Manchester

Job Detail
Job Description

Company/Name: The University of Manchester.

Location: Manchester.

Job Type: Part Time.

Specialism: Education.


Applications are invited for the post of Language Tutor in Hebrew (4.86 hours) for a fixed term from September 1st 2023 (or as soon as possible thereafter) to June 30th 2024.

The School of Arts, Languages and Cultures (SALC) contains one of the UK’s largest concentrations of high-quality research and teaching in languages and linguistics. SALC is seeking to recruit a fixed-term language tutor to contribute to the teaching activities of Hebrew within the Department of Modern Languages and Cultures. We are looking for an excellent language teacher who will provide instruction in Hebrew on our University-Wide Language Programme (LEAP). The successful candidate will contribute to course design, review and curriculum development, and to assessment at all levels. She or he will also carry out additional, relevant duties, as required by the Head of Department. This position is tenable from 1 September 2023 for a period of 10 months.

The School is strongly committed to the enhancement of excellence, designed to cement the University’s place within the world’s top 25 universities. In REF 2021, Modern Languages and Cultures at Manchester achieved an excellent result. Teaching is a key element of the School’s activity and students at all levels benefit from the breadth of the School in that they can combine languages and pursue interests from a cross-cultural and cross-linguistic perspective.

The candidate chosen will be the one who matches most closely the overall requirements of the post, so candidates should address the criteria in their applications.

Interview task: Short-listed candidates will be asked to make a 20-minute teaching presentation. They will be asked to present a 20-minute section of an actual class (as opposed to an entire class condensed into 20 minutes).

As an equal opportunities employer, we welcome applications from all suitably qualified persons and all appointments will be made on merit. As we are committed to the principles of the Race Equality Charter Mark, we would particularly welcome applications from the Black, Asian and Minority Ethnic (BAME) community who are currently under-represented at this level in this area.
