 General Finance Administrator (Full Time)                                               

Working as part of our small but busy, close-knit finance office, this post would suit an enthusiastic finance professional with a good eye for detail who likes variety in their work. 

The successful candidate will be responsible for payroll (we use an external bureau to produce payslips etc) and the banking of cash receipts from the hall, bar and buttery. Also included in the role is purchase ledger work (shared with a part-time member of staff), plus other general finance duties as directed, including supporting the deputy college accountant in the administration of the college’s EPOS system. 

All members of the finance team are also expected to man the finance reception desk on a rota basis, involving dealing with student and staff finance inquiries and taking payments, for which full training will be given. The finance team are also expected work on one specific Saturday and Sunday at the start of each academic year for matriculation (as either paid overtime or time off in lieu). 

You should be self motivated, have excellent communication skills and have a meticulous attention to detail. Broad finance experience is essential. In addition you should have a good working knowledge of Sage (or similar accounts packages) and Microsoft and enjoy working in a close knit but high pressured environment. 

Previous experience of administering payroll, using an EPOS system and working in a college environment would certainly be advantageous, but we are willing to train a less experienced person if we feel that they are the right candidate for the role. As a result, the salary offered will be commensurate with experience. 

The position is full-time, 37 hours per week, 8.30am – 5pm Monday to Thursday and 8.30am – 4.30pm on Fridays. For further details please read the Further Particulars To apply, please complete the College Application Form and Equal Opportunities Form and return:
