Job summary

This is an exciting and highly responsible role for a qualified / part-qualified accountant in a fast moving, highly innovative and expanding Multi Academy Trust. The successful candidate will have responsibility for supporting the Trust’s Chief Financial Officer and will work alongside senior colleagues from the Trust’s Central Executive Team.

The Trust Accountant will be a key part of the Trust’s financial team. The main responsibilities of the post include accurate financial monitoring, maintenance of financial systems, supporting the audit process and helping to produce accurate accounts.

The successful candidate should either have experience of operating at this level or be ready to move to this level. Whilst being fully qualified will be a distinct advantage, it is not essential if the same knowledge has been acquired through experience. Knowledge of this sector would be helpful but will not be a barrier and applicants from other sectors are encouraged to apply.

We offer significant support and training to help you excel in this role. The role will give you a great experience of the education sector and provide opportunities for further development. In this role you will have significant responsibilities, work with senior colleagues, contribute to projects across the Trust and most importantly make a positive impact on the lives of thousands of children. Funded training opportunities to support your career progression are also available.

We are looking for a Trust Accountant who shares these values and has the vision, drive and resilience to help our schools improve further.
