The financial services sector is evolving in the areas of smart and digital technology. The school is re-imagining its staffing provision to meet future student employment trends by building and acquiring expertise in finance, financial analytics, FinTech and RegTech (financial law, compliance and regulation).
The school proudly hosts three Finance Masters’ courses (including our MSc FinTech with Business Analytics degree) and two UG Finance programmes. These subject areas are the University’s star performers. We will also be offering a new BSc in FinTech and Data Analytics course in September 2023.

You will be expected to demonstrate strong competencies and expertise in the following areas, namely: finance, financial modelling, banking technology, and capital markets. Candidates with strong analytical, and computational backgrounds together with interests in the rapidly emerging fields of Finance and/or RegTech are also invited to apply.
You will join a team of highly qualified, expert and enthusiastic lecturers and researchers. The successful candidate for each post is expected to be capable of working harmoniously in a close team-based environment, fully supporting management and showing capabilities of taking on academic leadership responsibilities.
You will be expected to contribute to our ambitious drive for growth and for meeting our student employability goals. A progressive, compassionate and responsible set of personal values are desirable along with strong personal attributes to work harmoniously with our staff and student communities. You will contribute to the planning, design and development of courses, modules and assessment.
As a Lecturer, you will have or are working towards completing a PhD or appropriate relevant work experience in the profession and/or industry, supported by evidence, which demonstrates you are an expert with an authoritative understanding of your specialised field or discipline. You will also be working towards, or hold a Fellowship of the Higher Education Academy.
