We are delighted to be working with a Multi-Academies Trust in East London in recruiting to the role of Chief Financial Officer. Reporting directly into the Executive Principal, you will lead the Finance team across the 2 schools and be responsible for the entire function.
Leading a team of 4, you will need to demonstrate a "hands-on" approach and will be responsible for AP, AR and Payroll for the MAT. You will lead on all management, financial and statutory accounts and will have significant experience of regulatory reporting.
You will attend Board meetings and have the credibility and gravitas to engage and influence at a senior level.
The successful candidate will need to be willing to be on-site at the Schools in East London and this role will not be suitable to candidates seeking remote working.
The ideal candidate will have previous experience within MAT Education or within the Charities sector. This role will suit candidates with proven experience at Head of Finance or Financial Controller level and seeking their next step up, or with proven Finance Director level. A competitive salary and benefits package including LGPS is being offered for this outstanding opportunity.
