Here at Witherslack Group we strive to change young lives through our outstanding children's homes and schools. We are a growing organisation that is going from strength to strength. By helping us take care of our finances, you'll be helping our team create brighter futures for even more young people. This is an opportunity to join an expanding team that's friendly, skilled and highly supportive. Together, you'll help keep everything running smoothly.
This varied role sits at the heart of our Group Finance function, supporting the direct and wider team. Day to day, you'll be raising invoices, reporting costs and managing purchase ledger and inter-company transactions. You'll also post cash receipts on relevant ledgers and tackle credit control on sales ledgers. With the chance to help review finances for individual homes and schools, you'll have opportunities to learn, developing your expertise.
Having worked in a Finance team before, you've already got some experience. A qualification (e.g. AAT) would be ideal but isn't essential. We're more interested in your technical knowledge and skillset. You should be used to inputting data, preparing management accounts and working with Excel. You'll also be organised, committed to high standards and always ready to lend a hand. Good with people and passionate about our work, you'll thrive on the knowledge that you're helping to make a difference.
Please note there may be some travel required to various children's homes and schools, and a full UK driving licence is therefore required.
For children with complex, challenging needs, the level of care and education must go above and beyond. That's what drives us, here at Witherslack Group. With our high staff-to-child ratio and in-house clinical teams, we're proud to have won a reputation for excellence. Our aspirational homes, schools and ethos help us achieve the best possible outcomes. In short, we're enhancing opportunities.
We know you're going to do great things. We offer a salary and benefits package that's among the best in our sector. You will receive a competitive salary, 35 days' holiday, contributory pension (matched up to 5%) and a comprehensive induction, as well as extensive Group staff benefits such as Medicash Health Plan/Employee Assistance and Cycle to Work.
The Witherslack Group is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of its young people. This post is subject to an enhanced DBS check. We are an equal opportunities employer welcoming applications from all sections of the community.
