Lecturer in Accounting and Finance

University of Cumbria - Department of Business, Law, Policing and Social Sciences


Based at campuses in and around the Lake District and with a recent addition in London, the multi-award winning University of Cumbria is a wonderful blend of old and new, founded on a rich educational history with institutions dating back more than 150 years.

On the cusp of our 10th anniversary, we have a fast growing research reputation, increasing profile and place alongside national and international employers as well as multi-million-pound campus investments and exciting ambitions for the future.

This is an exciting opportunity to join a highly motivated team and take a key role in the further development, organisation and delivery of the University of Cumbria Business School.

We are looking for an enthusiastic and self-motivated individual with an interest in the field of Management Accounting, Financial Reporting & Accounting, Budgeting and Investment Appraisal. A commitment to subject specific and/or pedagogic research together with a passion for student success is also required.

The post holder will demonstrate enthusiasm for practice based learning, teaching and assessment and can clearly illustrate synergies of theory to practice and vice versa. Those with real world accountancy experience are therefore encouraged to apply. You should also be able to use a range of learning technologies and strategies in the support and provision of high quality learning opportunities and the best possible student experience.

Involvement in appropriate internal and external activities will be expected, including recruitment, academic enterprise and research activities. Whilst the role is based at the Lancaster campus it will involve travel across all the University campuses, nationally and internationally. All academic staff in the school contribute to the personal tutor programme.

We are seeking innovative, creative, high quality researchers, and scholars to foster a culture of exploration, discovery and intellectual challenge that generates international recognition, respect and engagement.

The University of Cumbria Business School (UCBS) delivers a range of undergraduate and postgraduate programmes at its campuses and overseas with a variety of delivery methods.

  • To be a leader in sustainability, raising aspirations and creating economic regeneration with, and for, the region of Cumbria and North Lancashire
  • To be a school which attracts people to the region and raises the profile of Cumbria outside the region

Our key aims to achieve this mission are:

  • To work together creatively and collegiately in supporting the strategic plans of the University of Cumbria.
  • To provide popular and highly regarded undergraduate and postgraduate programmes for those in, or aspiring to join, the business and management sector.
