A growing chain of academy schools based in W. Yorkshire with a good benefits package is recruiting a Head of Finance. This is a great opportunity for someone who has wanted to make the move into the education and schools sector, but doesn't have the sector experience. You will use your accountancy experience to add value across a number of key areas of delivery that will include:
Be the key finance support contact across the academy trust committed to development and improvement of both finance and the trust as a whole.
Contribute towards the development and effective operation of financial systems and procedures.
Budget setting and monitoring, costing activities and development of budget profiles.
Management and development for a small finance team.
The Successful Applicant
Candidates will be fully qualified (ACA / ACCA / CIMA / CIPFA) and with experience of managing a team, either as a Head of Finance or at least have management experience of managing a number of direct reports. You will also have senior level finance experience of shaping and delivering strategy across an organisation.
Experience of working within education or schools would be helpful, but not essential, although working as a key partner to this school you'll be comfortable in getting involved in the day to day life of a school environment.
