Assistant Accountant, London, Permanent, Full Time, £31,434 - £32,577 p/a - Dependant on Experience

Are you able to answer YES to the following questions?  If so this could be the role for you:

  1. Do you have a love and passion for numbers?
  2. Do you have good attention to detail?
  3. Do you want to be part of a committed and fun Head Office Team?

We are looking for an Assistant Accountant to join our Head Office Team based in Central London. 

The world of finance is a niche one where the brave prosper and safeguard the financial status of the Trust. Quite frankly, the Finance Team makes sure we have enough money to keep our schools solvent, continuously improving, whilst making sure everyone gets paid!

The main purpose of the role is to support the Finance Director and the Finance Team on a range of finance matters including, management accounting, financial analysis, budgeting, forecasting, statutory reporting and other finance related needs.  The successful applicant will also support staff in academies on the use of Trust wide financial systems and following Trust wide financial policies.

So the question is, do you love numbers, using spreadsheets and making things add up? Would you relish the opportunity to work in a diverse team and most importantly make a REAL difference to the financial stability and ultimately the education and life chances of the children and young people of our communities? This role entails all of these elements, plus lots more, and you’ll be part of a larger finance family who realise the importance of their roles and the difference they make!

The successful applicant should ideally be either a qualified or part qualified accountant working towards full qualification. More important than qualifications though they need to match numeracy and attention to detail with a positive and ‘can do’ approach. We all know how busy the world of Finance can become with our ever changing deadlines, it is therefore essential that applicants are organised and are able to prioritise conflicting demands.

They will need to be able to forge good working relationships with stakeholders and have the ability to juggle conflicting priorities whilst still smiling! 

If you’re interested in this role please take a look at our Job Pack and feel free to contact us for further information or an informal discussion

Closing Date: Sunday 05 July 2020
Interview Date: TBC

The Elliot Foundation Academies Trust is committed to safeguarding children and young people. The successful candidate will be subject to pre-employment checks including a Barred List and Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS) check.
