This is an exciting opportunity for a highly organised and customer-focused Finance specialist to provide comprehensive support to Caludon Castle as part of our Central Services team.  You will provide a full and responsive financial service to Caludon Castle with the potential to support other schools within our Trust.

With the support of the Trust Senior Finance Officer and Administrator, you will play a key finance role providing cohesive, efficient and effective finance support, advice and guidance across the full range of finance activities. 

This is a wonderful opportunity to gain some really valuable experience in a forward thinking Trust and to put your strong IT skills to the test!  The role will involve working closely with finance staff across the Trust, as well other members of the support staff team, in a very professional and friendly environment.

As part of the finance team you would need to meet weekly, monthly and annual deadlines and support budget holders by providing advice and information on our suppliers and the complete order process.  The Trust currently uses the PS Financials system to record all financial transactions, so experience in this system would be a distinct advantage.

You will need to be confident in the use of IT applications and the ability to create and manipulate Excel spreadsheets is essential.  Flexibility will be key as will a meticulous, organised, analytical approach, together with the ability to provide excellent customer service, to work accurately with attention to detail, to prioritise and make sound decisions.

Previous experience of working in an academic environment would be an advantage but this post could be equally suited to an experienced finance officer who has worked in a different sector.

You will be committed to the Trust’s working values including Respect to All from All and be able to quickly establish credibility, partnership and collaboration with a range of stakeholders.

This fulfilling role will provide a wealth of developmental opportunities and we will ensure you receive a comprehensive induction programme. The work is fast paced and varied, every week will be different and we will play to your strengths.  We offer a range of benefits which include the local government pension scheme, cycle to work scheme, access to the on-site gym and swimming pool, free parking, an employee discount scheme and a commitment to staff wellbeing and recognition initiatives through our wellbeing committee and people strategy.

Castle Phoenix Trust has a great deal to be proud of, with super facilities and a desire to continuously improve. If you have the passion and determination to be a valued part of our team, we would love to hear from you.
