37 hours per week, all year round
Start Date
As soon as possible

We are delighted to be making an appointment for a Finance Assistant to work at the Trust’s offices in Wakefield. All our academies offer a high quality of education for our students and excellent career progression and training for staff. Our driving ambition is Students First: Raising Standards and Transforming Lives.

To be successful, you must be a confident communicator, comfortable using Microsoft Office, excellent at Microsoft Excel and most importantly analytically minded with an eye for detail. The role will also require you to prioritise and manage your own workload whilst working as part of a wider team.

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 significant support and training to help you excel in this role. At the same time as learning a fantastic range of new skills in Finance, you will be given the opportunity to apply for funding to study an accountancy qualification.

If successful, we’ll look to you to contribute to an atmosphere of respect, recognition, optimism, celebration and mutual support in our Trust, which promotes equality from within, and values the diversity of the school community.

As part of the Outwood Family of Schools, you will be joining a highly innovative, inspirational and successful organisation. The Trust guarantees every member of staff CPD and development opportunities and various routes for career progression.

Outwood Grange Academies Trust is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children. All appointments will be subject to a satisfactory enhanced DBS disclosure.
