About Us

We create a new sense of neighbourhood in communities that had previously been forgotten by society and our Community Hub enables people to come together and fulfil their potential.

We are also raising the educational bar through our academies. A family of 52 educational institutions serving over 28,000 students from a variety of backgrounds, our academies seek to close the educational gap that exists between disadvantaged students and their more privileged counterparts.

We are now seeking a Regional Assistant Finance Manager to join our team in Bristol and support six Oasis Community Learning academies.

As the Regional Assistant Finance Manager, you will be tasked with supporting the financial health of six academies across the South West region for Oasis Community Learning.

- A commitment to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people
