We are looking for people who are highly motivated, ACA, ACCA, CIMA, AAT or similar financial qualification or have appropriate experience at a senior level.

The successful candidates will be highly skilled and comfortable with all aspects of Finance and Operations, have a proven track record of transformational leadership across a multi-site organisation and have experience of leading an effective team. You will be able to provide advice and support on SEND specific funding in mainstream and specialist settings including SEND specialist provisions within the mainstream and provide efficient business plans as part of bids for new special schools.
