The University of Warwick is one of the UK's great success stories. Since being founded in 1956, we have become one of the country's best universities, consistently in the top 10 of UK league tables and rapidly climbing the international rankings of world class universities.

With a reputation for entrepreneurial spirit and group turnover in excess of £600m the University offers exciting career opportunities for accountants.

The University Finance Office works with all Departments in the University to ensure that the University maintains its reputation for financial integrity and reliability. We support business planning and innovation to maximise the financial resources available to the University and create the long-term sustainable financial platform required for future growth. Please see our website for further details.

Several Finance Manager roles are available within Departmental Services. Successful candidates will be assigned either an academic departmental portfolio, a professional services portfolio or be seconded to an academic department (currently there is such an opportunity in the School of Engineering). Applicants are welcome to express a preference in their application form (academic or professional services) and this will be taken into consideration at offer stage where possible.

Postholders will be expected to provide accurate and timely management information and professional advice to departmental staff and to senior University management in order to aid planning, control and decision-making.

You will have a recognised accountancy qualification and broad experience within a finance function, including preparation of business plans. You will work closely with existing experienced finance staff and will be approachable, enthusiastic and able to explain complex technical matters to non-finance staff.

Finance Office staff across the University are networked as a professional community of expertise. You will be supported to continue your professional journey through access to Continuing Professional Development training opportunities, sector networks and regular Finance Office briefings. As a member of staff at Warwick you can enjoy a wide range of competitive benefits. The University also offers a wide range of learning and development opportunities, and we will work with you to support your career development. We respect and reward achievement and recognise the importance of a flexible total reward package.

Take a look at the benefits that are on offer, including an attractive pension scheme, a generous annual leave entitlement including Christmas closure, family friendly policies, and discounted Warwick Sport membership.

A £5,000 per annum market supplement (pro-rated and non-pensionable) is available for the successful applicant on provision of proof of current membership of an approved accounting body and evidence they hold the appropriate accountancy qualifications.
