We are looking to recruit a credible Regional Finance Manager to work with a number of our Peterborough Academies. This is a service lead role, which requires a strong partnering approach.

Key to this role is the ability to influence, manage relationships and support non-finance stakeholders in achieving their own objectives relating to month end close, consolidation and reporting. Key areas of focus will include:

  • the production of monthly management accounts;
  • forecasting on a rolling monthly basis;
  • supporting the Senior Leadership Teams in the business planning process;
  • providing financial and commercial support to key stakeholders;
  • working with the Central Finance Team based at Head Office to ensure risks are escalated effectively;
  • challenging the Senior Leadership Teams from a financial aspect;
  • promoting strong financial control and cost control within the Academies
  • ensuring Trust policies and procedures are followed;
  • taking overall responsibility for managing the academies day-to-day financial issues
  • managing a team of finance staff.


To be successful, you will be a commercially orientated qualified professional with exceptional interpersonal skills and the ability to work through complex problems. You will be analytical with a strong attention to detail, but also able to see the bigger picture. You should be able to effectively lead, manage and motivate a small team. Advanced excel skills are essential; experience in a school setting would be beneficial but is not essential.

Personal Attributes

  • good interpersonal skills to build relationships with senior staff;
  • down to earth, hands on pragmatic individual;
  • forward thinker who enjoys solving problems.

The role will be predominately based from the City of Peterborough Academy, but travel will be required.
