Rhiannon Davidge at firstname.lastname@example.org
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 and FinTech developments, preparing briefings for the monthly round-table and presenting the findings. 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.
He/she must also oversee operation of the Centre’s office on a day-to-day basis and will be responsible for development and implementation of new initiatives. The role will include liaising with sponsors and other partner institutions. Knowledge of website and database management and Twitter will be an advantage.
Since the Centre is small, the role also involves a limited amount of basic administration, so a flexible approach is essential.
