Woodcote High School has long been a top choice for parents in the Coulsdon & Purley area of South London. Located in a pleasant suburban setting on the borders of Surrey, Sutton and Croydon, the school has a rural feel.
Judged “good” by Ofsted in 2015 in all areas. Inspectors praised our students as “attentive, hardworking and practically always keen to learn. They get down to work fast and keep going diligently”. We are recognised by the DfE as providing outstanding value for money.
As a stand-alone Academy Trust we are directly responsible to the Education and Skills Finance Agency for financial probity. Hence we require an experienced finance professional to ensure that we meet all of our financial obligations and keep us in good fiscal health.
Our ideal candidate will be financially qualified perhaps with ACCA or at least accreditation towards this qualification such as AAT level 3. We are looking for someone who can manipulate spreadsheets and accounts packages with ease. Experience of working in a busy school environment would also be an advantage. In return we will offer a flexible and “family friendly” package which could be particularly attractive to “career returners” and colleagues with child care commitments.
If you have energy, ambition and a passion for accountancy, finance and compliance and are keen to work as part of a fantastic and supportive team, then we would like to hear from you. Successful applicants will join our team of specialists at a crucial stage of our journey to become "outstanding".
Please telephone the school if you would like to arrange an informal visit before you apply. Applications are welcome from all applicants who feel that they can make a significant contribution to our finance and HR team.
