Dr Nicholas Jephson

Teaching Fellow

I have been teaching at Leeds University Business School since August 2014, following successful completion of my PhD. My doctoral thesis focused on the increasing utilisation of non-graduate trainees by professional service firms. My current research interests span two main foci: the sociology of the professions and the trainee labour process. My current research interests are the labour process and job satisfaction of NHS workers.

My teaching focuses on equality and diversity, which I teach at master’s level, and also in research methodology: principally case-based research and qualitative data analysis. I am programme director for the undergraduate programmes parented by the Work + Employment Relations Division, and act as personal tutor to over 30 undergraduate and postgraduate students per year. I possess a keen interest in pedagogical developments in business school teaching and am a Fellow of the Higher Education Academy.
