A key member of our Royal Docks School of Business and Law team, you’ll be responsible for leading and developing the School’s work in Fintech in relation to research, consultancy and income generation, as well as taught courses.

You’ll also need proven experience of designing curricula and teaching at all levels in higher education. A consistent record of successful significant research grant capture is also required, as is a proven ability to design and implement research programmes within Fintech.
Well-organised and self-motivated, you’ll be a positive team player who’s comfortable working independently and enjoys using their creativity and initiative to solve problems.
