The Senior Leadership Team of St Oswalds CE Primary School are seeking to appoint an outstanding and highly motivated Finance and Admin Assistant for this exciting new role supported by the Diocese of Worcester Multi Academy Trust (DoWMAT) Central Team.
St Oswald’s CE Primary School joined DoWMAT as an academy in February 2018. DoWMAT was established in September 2016 and serves a growing number of academies (currently 15) within the Diocese of Worcester, which encompasses the Local Authorities of Worcester and Dudley. All are deeply committed to implementing a collaborative approach to developing and securing excellent educational provision for all our pupils. DoWMAT welcomes both church and non-church schools into the Trust. DoWMAT is a young MAT with high aspirations for its stakeholders, aiming to create futures for all. In a relatively short period, we have established strong governance and leadership structures as the foundations for future growth.
Working closely with the SLT of the Academy and the DoWMAT Central Team, the successful candidate will be an enthusiastic quick learner with excellent communication, numerical and administrative skills. They should be able to work independently whilst at the same time forming effective relationships with stakeholders. Experience in a finance/admin role and knowledge of financial/admin procedures would be an advantage, however full training will be given whilst getting established within the role. The role will provide excellent career development for the successful candidate, giving the opportunity to learn whilst assisting the Academy to flourish.
We can offer:
- Opportunities for individualised CPD and other training
- A dynamic, committed, friendly and hard-working collaborative team
- Wide ranging experience working alongside knowledgeable and experienced colleagues
- Enrolment to the Local Government Pension Scheme
The Worcester Diocese Multi Academy Trust is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of all children and preventing extremism. In order to meet this responsibility, our schools follow a rigorous selection process to discourage and screen out unsuitable applicants.
DoWMAT requires all employees to undertake an enhanced DBS check. You are required, before appointment, to disclose any unspent conviction, cautions, reprimands or warnings under the Rehabilitation of Offenders Act 1974 (Exceptions) Order 1975. Nondisclosure may lead to termination of employment. However, disclosure of a criminal background will not necessarily debar you from employment - this will depend upon the nature of the offence(s) and when they occurred.
Closing date for applications: 12.00 noon on Friday 9th April 2021
Interviews: Friday 23rd April 2021
