We are seeking two Finance Officers who will ensure timely and efficient processing of financial transactions within our new shared services operation. These are good opportunities for experienced financial administrators who enjoy working flexibly in an environment of change and growth. The job holders will work closely with the payroll provider to complete a payroll service.
Applicants must be strong communicators and have a passion for customer service. They will have a good working knowledge of Excel and be confident to learn and use modern financial software packages.
Although experience of the education sector would be an advantage it is not essential.
Aldridge Education was established as a national multi-academy trust in 2016. Our entrepreneurial community schools are focused on their young people succeeding in reaching their potential. Our goal is that, by the age of 25, all Aldridge graduates will have experienced an outstanding and enjoyable education and be able to sustain the life of their choice. They will be independent, thriving economically and making a real, positive contribution to their communities.
As a new and growing multi academy trust we currently employ around 550 people. This is an exciting time for us as we build our systems, policies and processes as a national organisation. Our HR and payroll services are provided by a third party provider and we have just agreed a new contract with them.
We operate our schools in regional clusters and currently have four academies in Darwen, Lancashire as well as two recently joined academies in the Brighton area. We have plans for expansion within our clusters over the next few years and are expecting to be joined later in the year by a secondary school in London, as well as two university technology colleges.
Please submit your CV and a letter of application by the 31st August to email@example.com demonstrating how you meet the selection criteria. Please note we will review applications on a weekly basis and may appoint before the closing date for applications.
