Bowland High Academy Trust - -340 days remaining
Closing Date 16/10/2017
Bowland High, Riversmead, Grindleton, Clitheroe, Lancashire BB7 4QS

We are seeking to appoint an enterprising and inspiring leader, with a strategic and innovative approach, to join the executive team at Achievement through Collaboration Multi-Academy Trust.

We are a recently formed small academy trust with two secondary schools, 1,700 pupils and a combined budget of approximately £9 million, which crosses the LA boundaries of Lancashire and Blackburn with Darwen.

At the heart of the Trust’s ambition is a determination to nurture and promote each individual’s unique potential. As our name suggests, we intend to build a trust with collaboration at all levels at its heart, as a vehicle to effect continuous improvement across our academies.

This is a brand new role, and consequently, you will enjoy a high level of freedom and autonomy to make it your own as you help us drive the strategic growth and development of the trust. As we continue to develop as a Trust, there will be plenty of opportunity for you to shape and progress the strategic direction of the service, whilst instilling a best practice approach in all that you do.

You will take overall responsibility for the financial, corporate and commercial management of the trust. This will include leading the finance team, ensuring that all statutory accounts and returns are completed and submitted, and ensuring that systems are regularly reviewed to support this. You will also provide advice to the governing bodies and trust board and oversee and lead on estates planning and health and safety arrangements across the Trust.

Our Director of Finance and Operations should be an experienced accounting professional with outstanding leadership skills and a track record of success at senior level. Knowledge of the MAT sector would be seen as a bonus and you must display a passion for making a difference to the education of our students.
