We are looking to appoint a Finance Assistant with a good understanding of finance and the ability to work well with students and staff. As well as working within our finance team, the successful post holder will also become a Learning Coach. This student facing role involves providing support to a small group of students and monitoring their academic progress.

The Finance Assistant role is an important one both within the Academy and beyond and the successful candidate will require the professionalism, organisational skills and attention to detail to impress a wide range of stakeholders. Previous experience of work within a school context would be an advantage.

We are currently graded outstanding by Ofsted and SIAMS, a World Class School and are a member of the Leading Edge network. In the summer we achieved our best ever GCSE and A level results in terms of both progress (top 14% nationally) and attainment. However, we are much more than a successful, academically focused school. We believe in educating the whole child and our Christian values of joy, perseverance, servant leadership, charity and forgiveness underpin everything we stand for. It is important that all of our staff, whether they are teachers or not, work closely with our young people and ensure that they are successful in all that they do. We are looking for staff who will always go the extra mile for our young people and believe that education happens both in and out of the classroom.

Chelsea Academy is a great place to work (we are one of the few schools in the country with Investors in People Gold), our staff are friendly and supportive and we offer a whole range of professional development opportunities no matter what stage you are at in your career. We want all of our staff to be outstanding and so offer unrivalled professional development and support. This includes a CPD session every week and access to a library of online courses besides bespoke training available for individual roles to carry out their responsibilities. Pastoral training is also available to help staff mentor students as Learning Coaches. Academy staff have access to a wide range of benefits these include a private healthcare package, 24 hour GP service, physiotherapy and a confidential well-being support line as well as a laptop and free lunch.
