The Schools of King Edward VI in Birmingham (“the Foundation”) is one of the most significant educational charities in this country. King Edward’s School was founded in 1552 by Edward VI and since then it has played a key role in the history of the city. In the late 19th century, it created five grammar schools and King Edward VI High School for Girls. Now in the 21st century, The Foundation runs twelve schools – two independent fee-paying schools, six selective academies and four non-selective academies.

The King Edward VI Academy Trust Birmingham (“the Academy Trust”) was established in 2017 and is made up of the ten academies outlined above.  The ten academies receive back-office central support services, including finance, from the Foundation Office.  The Foundation Office is the Foundation’s central support services function, with several staff being seconded from the Foundation to deliver support services to the Academy Trust and the academies themselves.

A vacancy has arisen for an Interim Financial Accountant for 12 months within our busy Charity Finance team (covering the Foundation Office and the two Independent Schools) to prepare and present a variety of financial reports assessing the financial performance of the charity together with producing quarterly and annual forecasts as well as statutory accounts.  You will be involved in the daily running of the company accounts, taking responsibility for observing, analysing and improving financial practices.  You will support the independent schools with financial advice and information as required.  The role also requires liaison with third parties to manage our portfolio of investments.

The Schools of King Edward VI in Birmingham is an educational charity and is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people and expects all staff and volunteers to share this commitment. Applicants will be required to undergo child protection screening appropriate to the post, including checks with past employers and the Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS).

This post is covered by Part 7 of the Immigration Act (2016) and therefore the ability to speak fluent and spoken English is an essential requirement for this role.
