Applicants will be experienced financial administrators who will assist the Trust's Head of Finance & Finance Manager in the design, management and coordination of the financial systems across the Trust providing an efficient financial service. In addition to ensuring that all financial records are maintained in line with financial regulations and audit requirements the post holder will be expected to assist budget holders to manage, monitor and plan expenditure from agreed budgets.

Applicants will have a relevant qualification eg. AAT and ideally a minimum of three years' experience in a school or educational finance environment.
