Candidates should have experience in policing practice or police officer training.

Salary will be matched against existing post/position.

The successful candidate will continue to be employed by their current employer with a matrix management support arrangement provided by the employer and the University of Huddersfield.

The Criminology and Policing subject area at the University of Huddersfield is currently expanding our provision within policing. Recently we have joined-up in collaboration with the award-winning national charity Police:Now to deliver accredited graduate diplomas in professional policing practice.  This two-year blended-delivery course will run nationally, and is one of the entry routes into work as a police constable for those that already have a non-accredited degree. This course will be accredited with the College of Policing. This lecturer/practitioner post recognises the crucial importance of supporting trainee police constables holistically throughout their course, ensuring that their practice and academic learning is fully integrated.

Informal enquiries are welcome and should be made to Dr Carla Reeves, Subject Leader in Criminology and Policing on 01484 472549 or by email

To apply please send your CV and a cover letter addressing the personal specification to
