Finance Assistant – 0.5 FTE

St George's SchoolWindsor and Maidenhead

St George’s is no ordinary school. Founded in 1348 to educate the choristers of St George’s Chapel, Windsor Castle, we are steeped in heritage and tradition. Whilst we remain true to one of our core purposes as a choir school, we now have well over three hundred boys and girls aged 3-13 and a flourishing boarding and day community who are part of this exciting place.

We seek a motivated and organized individual to join our team of dedicated support staff. The Finance Assistant will be specifically accountable for fees and payroll as well as providing support to the Business Director in financial reporting. The postholder will work alongside the Bookkeeping assistant and is expected to work collaboratively to support the smooth running of the finance department.

Taking a lead in relation to the school fees ledger (the equivalent of a sales ledger) and for payroll processes (a payroll bureau is engaged by the school), the Finance Assistant will also have the opportunity to support financial reporting and strategic analysis. The school currently uses Engage Finance.

  • Lunch is provided during term time
