Dr Charles Jardine

Visiting Fellow


Dr Charles Jardine teaches in the departments of Marketing Management and People, and Accounting Finance and Economics.

He currently specialises in leadership, management, strategy and governance, with long-term interests in social service capacity-building involving the non-profit sector.

Charles continues to work across all the economic sectors in professional capacities as an accountant, consultant and researcher. Often a combination of these three disciplines is required in teaching, training, coaching and mentoring in public, private and civil society organisations.

Charles has a wide range of experience at all levels both in the UK and internationally. Roles include current directorships, chairmanships and trusteeships to accompany professional practice and educational commitments.

Dr Jardine teaches as an adjunct or associate lecture on a part-time basis in broad Management and Accounting disciplines at LSBU.

In the past he has taught on Accounting and Finance, Governance, HRM, International Strategy, Leadership, Marketing, MBA, MPA, MVA, Social Entrepreneurship, Tax Law and others. He has supervised students, mainly at Masters level, through their research projects and dissertations, and recently qualified to supervise doctoral students.

Additionally his own PhD was funded and he has undertaken ESRC-funded placements and also led Knowledge Transfer Partnerships between the university and mainstream charities.

Post-PhD research is thus so far taking the shape of developmental testing in church-based organisations seeking to serve their communities through spiritually-motivated social action that delivers beneficial, valued and sustainable long-term social impacts to their communities.

Following current studies (April 2018) to complete a Fellowship in Higher Education (FHEA), Charles plans to write for peer reviewed journals at LSBU.
