Who we are

BPP University is the UK’s only university solely dedicated to business and the professions.  We are dedicated to preparing students for a professional career and our programmes are designed in partnership with employers and respected professionals in the fields of law, business, finance and health.

BPP University Business School provides a range of carefully selected programmes with a professional focus to get our students on track for their business career. Our links with leading businesses help us to design and deliver highly relevant programmes, tailored to meet the needs of today’s business climate.

What you’ll do

We are seeking a Lecturer specialising in Securities and Investments, with significant finance practitioner experience, to teach across apprenticeship programmes which support learners in working towards their Chartered Institute for Securities & Investment (CISI) professional qualification.

The role of the Lecturer is to ensure that students in the Business School receive a premium experience. This is achieved via delivery of the highest quality tuition, materials and student support.

Duties will include, but are not restricted to, the following:

  • Provide and be accountable for high quality course design and module leadership through using relevant professional syllabus material to create high quality, engaging teaching resources and formative assessment practice questions.
  • Ensure high quality and consistent teaching through the provision of detailed teaching guidance and academic support for the teaching team.
  • Providing ongoing personal tuition support to a cohort of Business School students in line with University policy.
  • Managing a cohort of students to ensure the smooth running and academic integrity of the relevant programme.
  • Providing academic support for commercial and business development activities within the School. Ad hoc provision of client liaison and support as required.
  • Teaching on the relevant programmes in mainly online but also face to face modes.
  • Supporting the Faculty and Corporate vision of a “university with a national and international reputation for excellence, innovation and regional engagement”.

Role Requirements

With significant practitioner experience in the Banking and Finance sector, you will hold as a minimum ACSI status with the CISI.  If you do not already hold a teaching qualification relevant to the discipline, or Fellowship of the HEA, you should be committed to achieving these through BPP’s PGCPHE or Headway (BPP’s accredited CPD scheme).

With excellent written and verbal communication skills, you will also be an effective presenter competent in the use of IT packages.  You will be able to effectively plan, organise and prioritise your workload and be equally happy working as part of a collaborative team as you are working alone.

Experience of teaching at a professional level or of delivering training and seminars in a commercial context would be desirable, though not essential, as would experience of writing engaging learning materials.

Please note the successful candidate will be required to undergo a DBS check.
