Job description

Job summary

The Imperial College Business School is expanding its provision of high-quality online and blended degree programmes and we are seeking talented and motivated individuals to assist us in this exciting initiative.

We are looking to appoint three new Assistant Learning Designers (1x 12month fixed term contract position and 2x open ended contract positions) to join our award-winning Edtech Lab, working to develop innovative and effective learning experiences for our suite of pioneering online and blended programmes.

Duties and responsibilities

This is a fantastic opportunity for anyone looking to develop their career in online learning design and would suit a recent graduate who is academically successful and highly organised. 

Essential requirements

The ideal candidate needs to be highly motivated by doing a great job, with a real sense of responsibility and fearless in the pursuit of perfection. You will have some experience of teaching and learning in an online environment and exceptionally strong editing and proofreading skills. You must have a passion for online learning and be pro-active in demonstrating how learning technology can be used to benefit students. You must also have strong time management and administration skills for this role.

You will largely be working on MBA, MSc and UG programmes as well as Executive Education and MOOCs delivered by the Business School and therefore knowledge of, or an interest in, the subjects taught at a Business School would be advantageous. 

Further information

The Imperial College Business School is committed to innovation in the use of learning technologies on its programmes and all modules taught at the school now have an online component. The School is expanding rapidly, and we offer a fast-paced and stimulating working environment. This is a place to challenge yourself and build your professional skills. You will work under the direction of a Senior Learning Designer but have distinct areas over which you have responsibility.

More detailed information on the role and the type of person we are looking for can be found in the person specification. Please note, while we are currently operating as a remote team, we will be looking to return to the campus in due course and so it’s important that you live within a commutable distance of the South Kensington campus.
