Job description

Formed from the merger of Sussex Coast and Sussex Downs Colleges, East Sussex College Group is a powerful new educational resource that will transform countless futures. We will give the young people of the county the best possible A-levels and technical qualifications, deliver apprenticeships and adult community learning fit for the modern world, and create a highly skilled and adaptable workforce. Effective financial management will be central to our success - placing you at the heart of everything we do as you join us from the very beginning.

Supporting our Financial Accountant in all aspects of reporting, you will participate in audits and investigations and undertake regular reconciliations of our balance sheet control accounts. Every day will bring different challenges as you deliver information for month-and year-end accounts, prepare VAT returns, maintain the fixed asset register, drive process improvements and train colleagues in evolving best practice. Equally importantly, you will support and nurture financial colleagues to achieve their full potential, whilst pursuing your own professional development as you complete your CIMA/CCAB qualification.

Experienced in financial management reporting within a medium-sized organisation, you will be skilled in disseminating complex financial data to stakeholders from all disciplines. At the same time, you should be fully familiar with balance sheet reconciliations, year-end processes and audits, variance reporting and the maintenance of financial systems - and you will be ready to demonstrate your initiative and judgement from your first day.
