Deputy Director of Finance


Thank you for taking the time to find out more about this important role at the University of Dundee.

At Dundee we place equal value on research, teaching, the student experience and our enterprise and engagement agenda.  In doing all of that we seek to fulfil our core mission, to transform lives locally and globally.  As Deputy Director of Finance, you will lead the operational Finance function and support the strategic leadership to ensure that we continue to deliver our mission.

You will lead our large team of Finance staff across the full spectrum of university finance activities, including financial reporting, business partnering, research finance, procurement and transaction processing.

We are a high-performing community driving one of the world’s top 250 universities.  Dundee is a city in the midst of an exciting transformation – highlighted by the opening in 2018 of V&A Dundee and the forthcoming arrival of the Eden project – making it one of the best places in the United Kingdom to live, work and study.  The University of Dundee is an extraordinary university, presenting a unique blend of gold-standard teaching, world-class research with impact and offering an outstanding student experience.

Higher Education is a rewarding sector to be part of and this position will be of interest to senior finance colleagues from a variety of backgrounds including those at other universities. We are seeking someone who embraces our values, sense of place, and commitment to building an inclusive culture, working with the leadership team and the University community.  I look forward to hearing more about you.
