Haileybury are recruiting for a Financial Accountant to work within the Finance Department, which provides a complete accounting service to all areas of the School. The Department is  responsible for ensuring that the financial needs of the School are planned for and met through setting budgets and timely reporting based on account reconciliations and other controls.

The main purpose of this role is to ensure that each account in the Nominal Ledger is reconciled regularly. This allows the reports produced to be reliable, clear and accurate records of the financial activity of the School. It is expected that the Finance Department can produce information quickly at the end of each reporting period. We must be confident that these reports can be scrutinised by internal and external stakeholders and any further information or clarification can be provided if required. This is only possible if our accounts are maintained and reconciled on a daily basis and so the Financial Accountant has a vital role to play.

Accuracy and attention to detail are key skills to succeed in this role, which involves processing large volumes of information and adhering to deadlines.  It is also important to be able to build internal and external working relationships with discretion and professional courtesy.
