What does the role involve?

We offer flexible opportunities for those who can contribute as a Graduate Teaching Assistant.

Ideally, we are looking for someone who can support various aspects flexibly across different modules at different points of the academic year with the option of flexible working/working remotely and starting as soon as possible.

There is a possibility of longer-term contact options both part and full time, depending on interest and skill. Do not be discouraged to apply if you will not be available straight away, as there are multiple opportunities, and more coming in the future.

If recruited as a casual worker the rate of pay depends on the type of work carried out, which would be either:

  • Higher rate: £28.82 ph (more detailed academic content design and development, independent teaching)
  • Middle rate: £21.36 ph (marking)
  • Lower rate: £17.11 ph (processing and responding to specific tasks already designed and developed, demonstrating)

You must have the right to work in the UK and a valid National Insurance Number for this position.
