Finance Assistant

The Outwood Grange Academies Trust (OGAT)Wakefield

Outwood Grange Academies Trust (OGAT) places students at the centre of everything we do, with a focus on creating a culture of success, a positive climate for learning, and increased student attainment, achievement and social and emotional development. Our staff are dedicated to securing the best possible outcomes for every student.

At OGAT, we have strong systems that are held in the highest regard by the Department for Education/Education Funding Agency, which enable the Finance and Operations departments to work hand-in-hand with executives to best deploy our resources and ensure the effective and efficient use of our funding.

To that end, we are seeking a Finance Assistant to join our Trust, working within our Primary Finance team based in Wakefield at Outwood Primary Academy Kirkhamgate. The successful candidate must be able to demonstrate financial acumen, good organisational skills with excellent attention to detail, and be a confident communicator.

Whilst it would be helpful if you had knowledge of this sector and experience of Finance, it would not be a barrier to any applicant, as we will offer support and training to help you excel in this role. At the same time as learning a fantastic range of new skills in the Finance and Education sector, you will be given the opportunity to apply for funding to study an accountancy qualification, such as AAT, ACCA or CIMA.

The role will give you a great introduction to the Finance function and provide the opportunity to develop both analytical and professional skills that will be of benefit to you in your future career. You will have the opportunity to take on real responsibilities, work with senior colleagues and contribute to projects across several schools.

Please note that there is currently a job evaluation exercise being undertaken across the Trust. The salary advertised for this post is therefore subject to job evaluation and may change.
