Who we are:

The Language Gallery (TLG) in the UK is part of the thriving Global University Systems Group, with a reputation of excellence in providing English Language and University Pathways programmes. Aided by our strong partnerships with St. Mary’s University (Twickenham London), Bishop Grosseteste University (BGU), we welcome students currently studying around the world in some of the world’s biggest cities. We currently have 3 campuses and have ambitious growth plans – which makes for an exciting time to join TLG!

At the very heart of our vision is a student-centred learning and teaching methodology which is progressive, forward-thinking, modern, and designed to meet our learners’ needs.


The Role:

At TLG, we’ve had huge uptake in student numbers coupled with our new partnership with Bishop Grosseteste University (BGU) and this demand has led us to opening a new campus’ in Birmingham and Nottingham, which is in addition to our two campuses in London. As such, we’re looking for an Academic Mentor in Business Management to guide and coach our Business Management students, on a wide range of academic and pastoral topics.

Often, academic mentoring sessions can act as a space for dialogic education, where academics and students can discuss students’ studies and their progression. Equally, the role is sometimes just about being an initial contact, listening and empathising, then referring the student on to the correct support service. Our students come from a wide range of different educational backgrounds, and academic mentoring gives them a chance to discuss their experiences with academics to help them succeed whilst with TLG. The mentoring relationship eases students into the academic community and its expectations while offering students a space where they can pose questions or seek advice. By being an initial contact, students have someone they know in a mentorship role to raise questions and concerns. However, that can only happen if the relationship and trust is developed through sustained contact and conversation.

All students will have a mentor to advise on matters, and therefore, expertise in Business Management is a must, particularly in any of the fields of accountancy, finance, and economics. We are more than happy to consider different working patterns, including permanent full-time and part-time opportunities to suit individual needs.

To note, this role will involve working over the weekend.


Role Requirements:

· A subject specialism of business management (accountancy / finance / marketing / economics, etc.)

· Experience of academic and administrative management is essential.

· A degree or higher in a relevant field or equivalent experience

· Organisation and time management

  • Excellent communicator verbally and in writing
