Chief Financial Officer

Part time – average of 3 days per week 

Permanent

Starting salary £36,000 to £40,000 pa for 3 days per week

REQUIRED TO START IN NOVEMBER 2019 (SOONER IF AVAILABLE)

Enhance Academy Trust is a Multi-Academy Trust comprising of ten primary schools located across Wakefield and Kirklees and a post 16 performing arts free school.  The Trust was established in 2012 as a sponsor of Church of England and Community Schools that needed support and eight of its ten primary academies have been sponsored or transferred into the Trust.

 

The Trust works very closely with its academies and encourages them to help each other whilst at the same time allowing them a reasonable amount of autonomy.  It has kept to this model whilst it has been expanding and wants to continue to follow similar principles in the future.

 

We are now seeking to appoint a Chief Financial Officer to join our forward-thinking organisation. The Chief Financial Officer will work closely with the Chief Executive, Head Teachers and Business Managers within our academies to help deliver the Trust’s strategic objectives.

 

The successful candidate will preferably have previous experience working within an academy and have a detailed understanding of academy accounting requirements and processes. They will ensure that the Trust’s finance systems are robust, and the finance function adds value by helping our academies to use their resources as efficiently and effectively as possible.

 

Enhance Academy Trust can offer: -

  • the opportunity to be part of the leadership team of an Academy Trust where people matter
  • the opportunity to become a key member of a team that always wants to do better both individually and collectively
  • outstanding Professional Development opportunities.

Enhance Academy Trust is committed to creating a flexible workplace for its employees and therefore we would welcome the opportunity of discussing, with the right candidate, the opportunity to develop a bespoke work pattern if this met the needs of the right candidate as part of their work life balance and family commitments.

 

This role will be based initially at Enhance Academy Trust, 1 South Parade, Wakefield, WF1 1LP although we are in the process of looking for new offices close to the centre of the Trust’s operating area.

 

The job description outlining the key responsibilities of the role is attached alongside the person specification.

 

If you would like an informal discussion about this position, please contact Kevin Jones (CEO) on 01924 434 452.
