Background

The Centre for the Study of Financial Innovation is an independent, not-for-profit think-tank. Founded in 1993, its goals include identifying the innovations and dangers that will affect the future of financial services. There is no ideological agenda, just a belief that frank debate of the issues that will ensure a more healthy future for the sector.

The CSFI holds about 90 round-table discussions a year, as well as dinners and working groups, on a variety of topics. It has published 110 reports in its 25-year history. It receives funding from more than 80 public and private institutions.

The Role

The CSFI is looking to recruit a bright and self-motivated individual with an interest in finance and technology to drive its work programme and to take the lead in the FinTech area. It is an excellent stepping stone to a career in the City and beyond with previous employees moving on to the BoE, the FCO, the FSA/FCA, NESTA, BP and the UN.

Reporting to the Director and Co-Director, the Programme Coordinator will be responsible for planning and execution of round-table events, working group meetings, dinner debates and lectures. The role includes responsibility for management of the Centre’s work programme to ensure a coherent series of events with clear strands of research. Candidates with knowledge of, and an interest in, FinTech will be at an advantage. The role will involve extensive monitoring of financial services developments and preparing briefings for the round-tables. The candidate must also have first-class writing skills. He or she should be able to stay current with key developments in the areas in which the CSFI has an interest. In addition to technology, those include financial regulation, financial exclusion, corporate governance, pensions etc.
