We have an exciting opportunity for an enthusiastic, proactive and professional Finance Officer to support the finance function at Ellis Guilford School. We require an individual capable of creating well organised, structured routines to ensure that the workload of the Finance Team is carried out to a high standard of accuracy, in a timely and efficient manner and in accordance with the Trust’s financial regulations. 

You will lead a small team and be responsible for ensuring the accurate processing of all the Trust’s financial transactions to agreed deadlines. You will be responsible for all aspects of book keeping, including sales and purchase ledger, reconciliations, cash, banking and nominal ledger administration.

A high level of accuracy and attention to detail are essential to the Finance Officer role, as well as good communication and problem-solving skills.
