Outwood Grange Academy places students at the centre of everything it does, with a focus on creating a culture of success, a positive climate for learning, and increased student attainment, achievement and social and emotional development. We are currently looking to recruit a Finance and Administrative Assistant who can work in a fast paced environment.

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, and provide professional, efficient administrative support for the Academy. You must have 5 GCSEs at Grade A* to C (including English and Maths) or equivalent, and be keen to undergo further development/education. Full training and support will be given for the right candidate.

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.

Please note that CV’s will not be accepted. If you have any questions regarding the post, please contact Victoria Moran, HR Assistant: or call 01924 204350 ext 227.

Please note that there is currently a job evaluation exercise being undertaken across the Trust. The salary advertised for this post is therefore subject to job evaluation and may change.
