Finance Department

St Mary's University College offers a wide range of undergraduate and postgraduate degree programmes on an attractive residential campus with over 4,000 students. We have an exciting opportunity for a Director of Finance to lead and develop the finance team and implement strategies to continue to advance the University College’s financial operations.

You will be responsible for the strategic and operational management of all University College financial matters, ensuring that the University College meets statutory obligations and objectives in the key areas of financial management, accounting and audit. You will work closely with the Vice-Principal (Resources) and Senior Management team on strategic financial matters and risk management. A major part of the role will involve providing effective, high quality financial advice to internal and external stakeholders.

Experience of working in higher education is desirable but not essential. You will have exemplary leadership and management skills and the drive and vision to maximise the financial return to the University College from its operations. The ability to work under pressure and manage a large, complex workload is essential.

Benefits include 30 days annual leave plus additional University College closure days, a subsidised refectory and sports facilities.

Due to UK Border Agency policy changes on immigration, we can only accept applications from Non EEA candidates who hold Tier 1 status and are able to work and reside in the UK with no restrictions on sponsorship of an employer required.
