Head of Finance

Why apply?

2017 is going to be an interesting year for Apprenticeships with the Government Levy in place. This will affect employers in all sectors whereby business with a paybill in excess of £3 million will be charged 0.5%, which is then set aside specifically for Apprenticeships.

QAA offers employers programmes to not only take on young learners but upskill their current employees by offering Apprenticeships in Systems & Networking, Software Development, Digital Marketing, Business Administration, Project Management, Leadership & Management and Cyber Security.

What is the role?

With our support you will be working alongside the Finance Director and oversee the preparation of Management Accounts, reconciled control accounts with a focus on managing and preparing annual budget and monthly forecasting for the Apprenticeship division. Have you got previous experience of implementing change and cost saving initiatives? Have you lead and improved a Finance team of 4 plus? Then this is for you.


It is unlikely you’ll want or be able to work for free. So with that in mind we offer a financial package of up to £65,000 per annum.

Other benefits

25 days holiday, 2 days paid Charity work each year for a charity of your choice (which we actively encourage), 3 days of additional training which does not need to be relevant to your role from our very own course selection (1,500 to be precise), Life Assurance, subsidised gym membership and cycle to work scheme.

Must have’s:

  • ACA/CIMA/ACCA at least 3 years PQE
  • Experience in a similar role of leading and managing a finance department
  • Advanced Excel and modelling skills
  • Understanding of Government funded programmes would be a bonus
  • If you have knowledge of BI software that would also be a massive bonus!

Interested? If so please apply.
