Finance manager position within growing MAT in Manchester

Your new company
I have been approached by a large & ambitious multi academy trust based in Manchester in order to recruit a finance manager to be part of their growth projects. In recent years they have quickly developed and now have 10+ academies within the trust. Due to their growth they need a finance manager who can work with key stakeholders within their academies.

Your new role
Working closely with the CFO you will develop new growth strategies and aid in the due diligence involved in bringing more academies into the trust. This is critical to the role and you will be heavily involved in ensuring new academies are fit for purpose. Other key elements of the role include business partnering with key stakeholders from different sites as well as budget holders at head office, completing management accounts & statutory accounts in line with FRS102 whilst also looking to implement/improve processes and systems.

What you'll need to succeed
You must be a qualified accountant (ACA/CIMA/ACCA) with a background in financial management and business partnering. You will be a key part of driving change & initiatives so a forward thinking candidate would be well suited to the role. There are elements of travel within the position so a willingness to commute is essential.

What you'll get in return
This is an excellent opportunity to join a growing organisation with real ambition to develop further. You will have the chance to be at the forefront of this development. This, alongside a competitive salary and package, makes the position stand out amongst other roles.
