About us

The UCL School of Management is home to UCL’s business and management research and education programmes. The School has forged a reputation for world-leading research and teaching in the areas of innovation management, the creation and growth of technology-intensive organisations, business analytics, and entrepreneurship. The research undertaken at the UCL School of Management has been rated as ‘world-leading’ and ‘internationally excellent’ in the Research Excellence Framework 2021 (REF), placing us 2nd in the UK for Business and Management.

The School is home to over 2,000 students, with more than 55% from outside the UK. The School’s faculty members also come from all over the world, with PhDs from Harvard, MIT, Stanford, Columbia, UCLA, North-Western, Cornell, Duke, Cambridge, and London Business School among others. The UCL School of Management takes full advantage of being part of a world-leading university through its interdisciplinary outlook and builds on close collaborations in both research and education with other UCL departments, including computer science, engineering, economics, psychology, public policy, statistics and medical sciences.

About the role

There are Teaching Assistant opportunities available in nine different subject areas (please follow the links below for further information on each subject).

Teaching Assistants (TAs) will supplement academic lectures through the delivery of group teaching (for example, in seminars and workshops) and associated duties for students taking modules in the School of Management. Associated duties may include marking of coursework and exams. The post holder will report to the leader of the module/s they are supporting and the appointment will be available from 23 September 2024 to 30 June 2025.

It is anticipated that a significant number of TAs will be involved in both teaching and marking. There will, however, be some opportunities for duties involving teaching only, and/or marking only. The department will make every effort to match the allocation of teaching and/or other duties to an individual’s experience, and to take account of any preferences regarding individual modules and specific duties stated at the time of application. Once appointed, TAs will be expected to show reasonable flexibility in undertaking the class teaching they are allocated. Also, since the number of students on some modules is not known until after the start of term, the department reserves the right to make last-minute adjustments to teaching loads or timetables, marking and other duties.

The allocation of class teaching to TAs will be determined by academic staff in the School.

Salary is £20.47 per hour plus an additional market supplement of £12.54 an hour, making a total of £33.01 per hour (please note; marking is paid at different rates depending on type of marking and length of scripts).
