Full - Time School Accountant 

Reporting to the Bursar, and part of the School Administration team, the School Accountant is responsible for the day to day operation and management of the School’s accounting function. This includes payroll, pension, nominal ledger, fee ledger, purchase ledger, cash, billing, and production of termly and year end accounts to trial balance. This is a hands-on role and the School Accountant will be required to operate and manage the whole process from data entry through to reconciliation and control. 

The ideal candidate will have several years’ experience in an accounting function which includes responsibility for payroll. You will also be used to running purchase ledger and other elements of the accounting function independently and may have an accounting qualification.  The right personality, experience and ability is more important than a qualification.

The candidate must be competent and efficient with Excel.

Experience running payroll and working within a commercial office is essential, experience working in a school environment is desirable but not essential.

Experience of either the School’s current management information system, WCBS (PASS), or similar packages such as Sage would be very beneficial but is not essential provided you can demonstrate a strong aptitude for working with different financial packages and developing competence quickly.
