Head of Finance

AoC scale 44-47 (£46,259 - £50,545)

WM College is an Institute of Adult Learning based in the heart of Camden, north London.  The College is all about providing opportunities and transforming the lives and prospects of our learners and we know that we need to be great stewards of our financial resources and apply them wisely to maximise these opportunities and provide the best possible experience for learners.  So we are seeking a Head of Finance who shares that passion and will bring strong leadership, management and rigour to the Finance and Payroll function to deliver an outstanding service to learners, staff and external agencies and stakeholders.

The College has good financial strength with a strong balance sheet and income from a mixture of revenue grants, capital grants, learner fees and some commercial and investment activity.  As well as Financial Controller responsibilities, overseeing the operational functions of the department, you will work with the Vice Principal and Principal to develop and appraise strategies and financial opportunities that will maintain the College at the forefront of adult learning with innovative projects, even through challenging times for public finances.

Your role will mix operational control and processing priorities with strategic leadership and project management.  You will work with the Executive Management Group and Governors to provide accessible, informed and insightful reporting and to develop and implement financial strategies and projects, as well as committing time to budget holders to support them in the interpretation and control of their budgets and expenditure.

If this challenge excites you and you think you can bring the inspirational leadership and professional expertise that the role demands, combined with hands-on practical application, and you thrive on working at all levels in a busy environment, then we would welcome your application.
