Job Description

St. George’s, University of London (SGUL) is the UK’s only medicine and health sciences university, is ranked within the top 250 universities in the world and is consistently ranked top in the UK for graduate prospects. We have around 4,800 students and have an annual turnover of circa. £90m. As well as world-class medical, bio-medical and health education, we have three research institutes in which our scientists are tackling some of the world’s most important healthcare challenges.

As well as investing in existing and emerging areas of research strength and committing to adapting our research to new needs of society, we promote a student-first culture and as such we continue to invest to provide the best possible student experience.

This is against a backdrop of the Higher Education Sector (HE) being an uncertain place, with financial sustainability being one of the biggest risks to the sector and many universities. We are looking for an exceptional finance professional to join the Senior Leadership Team to help SGUL navigate these challenges to ensure our long-term financial sustainability – whilst maintaining our growth trajectory and investment supporting world-class research and an exceptional student experience.

Flexible working, including part-time or reduced hours of work, opportunities to work from home for many posts, compressed hours and local flexibility in agreeing start and finish times of work are among the extra benefits offered by St George’s, University of London.
