The Role

As a small but growing Trust, we are currently seeking an experienced Finance Manager to join our Central Support Team who provide support services to all four schools within our Trust. The role is working from home/virtual working with regular travelling to all 4 academies (Oxford, Nuneaton, Rugby and Henley in Arden)

As the Finance Manager, you will be responsible for the efficient and effective management of the Trust financial systems. You will ensure compliance with Trust Finance Policy and Procedures and ESFA Financial Handbook. You will also support Principals and the Head of Operations to ensure that all budgetary targets are met by individual academies and the MAT as a whole. You will be able to provide insight and analytics to ensure value for money and appropriate spending, leading on Procurement Projects where appropriate.
Reporting to our Head of Operations, you will liaise with academy Principals to ensure that dedicated teams, including Business Managers who oversee finance, data protection and ICT in each academy are effective, competent and well supported. You will ensure the delivery of annual accounts in accordance with the Academy’s Financial handbook, ESFA guidelines and all statutory requirements.

The role incorporates Finance and management of key contracts including Information and Communications Technology (ICT) which will support the Head of Operations in the efficient and effective delivery of the Trust’s strategic aims and objectives.

Key Requirements

You need to have (or be working towards) an Accountancy Qualification (CIMA/CIPFA/ACCA/ICAEW) and have experience of managing, supporting, training, developing and coaching staff, including the assessment and control of work priorities.

You will ideally have experience gained within the Education sector, knowledge of academies financial regulations, and previous experience of completing and submitting year end statutory accounts and relevant statutory returns; alongside practical experience of presenting complex issues to School and Trust Leaders. A management qualification and an understanding of the ESFA systems is desirable.

A strong team player, you will possess the ability to operate calmly under pressure and you will be prepared to work variable hours occasionally to meet the requirements of the post.

The role can be based remotely with regular visits to our sites in Warwickshire and Oxfordshire, (and elsewhere as required) so your own transport and a willingness to travel is essential.
