We are an innovative and bold University Group that is breaking new ground in how to achieve excellence in higher education and research, evidenced by our ever-increasing positions in sector wide rankings. We have invested significantly, in partnerships with international organisations, with business and research bodies and in the facilities and places where our students, graduates and staff work together. Now is the time to be part of this exciting, forward looking university.

The Faculty of Business and Law is home to over 7000 students enrolled on undergraduate, postgraduate and research programmes across a broad variety of academic areas, along with over 400 staff from a rich diversity of cultural and subject backgrounds. Maximising the employment prospects of our graduates is central to everything we do which is why the Faculty has invested heavily in facilities to enhance students' learning experiences. These include a state-of-the-art DigiComm Lab equipped with the latest industry standard software and hardware, a replica court room, Trading Floor with 42 Bloomberg terminals and a Strategy Lab; each offering hands-on opportunities to develop and apply the learning. 

The Faculty's globally recognised, accredited Coventry Business School incorporates the subsidiary School of Economics, Finance & Accounting. It is here we are looking to recruit an experienced, highly motivated Assistant Lecturer in Finance to help sustain the School's creative goals and growth plans.  

Your teaching approach will be flexible, student-centered and research informed. As the role will also require you to develop and maintain productive relationships with placement providers, employers and other stakeholders, you will need a high level of inter-personal skills, and personal effectiveness to promote a high-quality experience for all our stakeholders. You will have a strong commitment to continuing professional development.

The Faculty of Business and Law has strong partnerships with employers and placement providers from a range of sectors including Local Authority Social Services, Strategic Health Authorities, NHS Trusts, education, and the independent, voluntary and the private sectors. Research activity is an integral part of the Faculty's business and there is a strong commitment to enabling staff to engage in a wide range of research and scholarship. You will be given opportunities to develop your research interests. 

Applicants must have a relevant Master's degree and experience of delivering in an educational setting. Applicants would also be expected to undertake a PhD in an appropriate subject. Coventry University offers academic support and professional development support and provides the opportunity for staff without a recognised teaching qualification to undertake the PGCE.
