Month end cost reports for the IT and Estates departments will also be required.
The role is also responsible for the maintenance of the Agresso system, including amendments to cost centres, account and project codes. Extensive experience of learning new systems is a necessary skill for this role.
The permanent role involves extensive liaison with non curriculum departments including Estates and IT, and is an outward facing role. Support will be provided by other members of the Finance team for this aspect of the role, although the successful candidate will be responsible for answering queries from budget holders which will usually involve interrogation of the Agresso system. The role will provide support to budget holders with preparing an annual forecast which will be required in the spring term.
