London South Bank University (LSBU) is a modern, dynamic university with a long history of leading the way in applied education and practice-led learning. With over 17,000 students and 2,000 staff from over 130 countries, we work together to foster the development of graduates, ready to address business and societal challenges.

The University created LSBU Group, a unique and growing partnership of secondary, further and higher education providers in south London. LSBU Group is made up of four organisations and was created in 2019 after LSBU oversaw the first merger of its kind between a university and college.

You will also bring a successful track record of delivering high-quality financial management and reporting, managing financial controls and statutory reporting, and leading significant financial change programs. You will be an experienced people leader and will work to ensure that inclusion and diversity are integral to the culture of the University.
