The main aim of the Finance team is to process accurate and timely information in order to provide financial management information and thus assist in effective budgetary control and future strategic decision making. Efficient and effective accounting procedures are therefore an important part of the School’s plan. This post lies at the heart of these activities.

The Administrator sits within the Management Accounts/Research Finance sub-team and is line managed by the Finance Manager. The post-holder works closely with the Finance Manager, Research Accountant and the other Administrators to support financial activities including, teaching, research (which includes financial activity associated with the Lyell initiative) and consultancy finance within the School. There will be a specific focus in the role around handling finances for the School’s Approved Learning Partner (ALP) activities.

The prime function of the post will be to provide academic staff and the senior management team within the School of Energy, Geoscience, Infrastructure and Society with direct and indirect support in managing the financial affairs of the school, to ensure that they are handled as efficiently as possible and ensuring maximum recovery of costs to the University. The post-holder will be required to liaise closely with other members of the School’s Finance Team as well as other professional service teams both within the School and across the university (e.g. the School’s Research team and Staff Office, the central Research Grants Office (RGO) and Research & Enterprise Services (RES) etc.) to ensure that all duties are seamlessly covered and an excellent service is provided.

This is a full time open-ended post and we are seeking for the successful candidate to start as soon as possible.
