This role will be based on the university campus with scope for it to be undertaken in a hybrid manner. We are also open to discussing flexible working arrangements.

Are you a part-qualified accountant or do you have significant finance office experience? Would you like to be part of a busy and customer focused finance team? Do you have excellent communication and interpersonal skills and the ability to prioritise and organise your work and to produce accurate work under pressure?

The University of Leeds is one of the top 135 universities in the world.  We have a truly global community, with more than 39,000 students from 170 different countries and over 9,000 staff of 100 different nationalities.  Established in 1904, we have a strong tradition of academic excellence, reflected in first-class student education, along with world-leading research that has a real impact around the globe. 

We are looking for a part qualified accountant/accounting technician or person with significant finance office experience to join the Faculty Finance Office (FFO) and provide financial support and advice across the Faculty of Environment. 

The main duties of the post will involve assisting the Faculty Accountants and Deputy Faculty Finance Manager with reporting,  budgeting and planning for the faculty’s accounts, costing of projects and short courses, support with statutory returns, staff cost reviewing, updating of forecasting and planning, month end reporting and postgraduate research student financial administration.

With experience of monitoring actual income and expenditure against budget and of preparing variance analysis, you will have excellent IT and analytical skills and a proven ability to use Microsoft Excel effectively. You will also possess excellent communication and interpersonal skills, with the ability to work as a team player and to build positive working relationships with a wide range of people.

This vacancy is within the Finance Service but it is based in the Faculty of Environment. However, should the business need arise, and after full consultation with you, you may be deployed elsewhere within the Finance Service.
