My client, a respected and established independent school offering an inclusive and nurturing environment across multiple sites, is seeking to appoint an experienced accountant to ensure the ongoing smooth operation of their finance team.

A really interesting position, the right candidate will either come from a similar finance focussed role within the education sector, or perhaps have experience of working within the finance department of a sports or leisure focussed company and have a desire to move into the sector.

The key focus of the role is to work with the Head of Finance and act as a Finance Business Partner across the school and its wider interests.  Most prominently, this role will partner with the General Manager of the school’s leisure facilities and be on hand to offer advice and strong business support as this develops as a commercial venture.  Already operating as a successful business in its own right, they are keen to ensure robust financial controls are in place for the day to day running of this as its own revenue stream.

Alongside the core responsibilities you will also be expected to assist the wider finance team and work collaboratively with colleagues across the department and senior leadership team.  As such, this promises to be a varied and wide reaching role that offers the opportunity to take on further duties and further develop.

Essential for this role:

  • A Qualified or Part Qualified Accountant (AAT/ ACA/ ACCA/ CIMA/ CIPFA)
  • Experience of financial reporting and management  
  • Competent use of Excel and good general systems knowledge
  • Able to demonstrate good general bookkeeping skills and the ability to adapt
