Assistant College Accountant

This is an exciting role supporting the College Accountant in the preparation of financial statements, management reports, budgets, statutory returns and providing financial information for senior management.

Working as part of a small Finance Bursary team reporting to the College Accountant, we are looking for a qualified accountant who can apply their accounting knowledge to the unique demands of a registered charity in higher education. The individual will need to be flexible in their approach to work, either performing their financial line functions, deputising for the College Accountant in his absence, or providing holiday and absence cover for Finance Bursary colleagues.

We are looking for a self-motivated individual who will have a proactive approach to the role, an ability to organise their own workload, good IT skills and the ability to communicate effectively with people at all levels. Experience of working in higher education or a charity is an advantage, but not essential.

Applications are to be made via the Hays Recruitment website to arrive by 12:00 noon on Tuesday 7 May 2019.
