Improving opportunities and outcomes for our pupils and students is at the heart of all that we do. For children and young people, especially those with special educational needs or who experience other barriers to learning, our world can present many challenges. All young people deserve to leave education confident that they have developed the skills they need to achieve their ambitions, with meaningful education, work and life experiences to draw on. This is the confidence that we aim to deliver.

We are steadily extending the reach of our provision within our local communities from primary through secondary to further education, smoothing transitions and giving pupils and students the benefit of expertise generated from our collegiate approach to knowledge-sharing amongst our staff. All of this is underpinned by a suite of shared services whose expert staff work closely with students and staff in each school/College centre and with affiliates and commissioning organisations to improve educational and operational quality at every level to benefit our students.

You will work within the Finance Team and oversee the financial management for the College and support other Orchard Hill College Academy Trust financial management needs as required.

AAT Qualified or Part/Qualified CCAB qualifications are desirable or you will be able to demonstrate relevant recent experience.

You must:

  • Have 2 years of accounting experience and a good understanding of working in the education sector.
  • Have experience of using Resource or similar packages.
  • Be able to carry out financial monitoring and budget setting.
  • Have excellent communication skills and be adaptable to a changing work environment.

Orchard Hill College and Academy Trust operates from multiple educational centres in Wallington, Carshalton, Hackbridge, Camberwell Green, Kingston and Hillingdon. Our students are at the heart of what we do, and this is reflected in the way the Finance team works. The team is currently based in Sutton but there is an expectation that you will travel to all centres as required.

This college is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children, young people and vulnerable adults and expects all staff and volunteers to share this commitment.
