The Royal Alexandra & Albert School is a purpose-built co-educational maintained boarding school in 260 acres of Surrey parkland. Pupils are aged 7-18 and 470 of the 1000 pupils are boarders. The school has excellent facilities and is only 5 minutes from the M25.
An excellent opportunity has arisen for a Head of Finance in our large, unique, exciting, successful and developing boarding school. The Royal Alexandra and Albert School is a co-educational state boarding school for students aged 7 to 18, set in Gatton Park, with its three lakes, serpentine and 260 acres of parkland.
Reporting directly to the school’s Bursar, this pivotal role ensures the smooth and successful combined running of the two Finance teams supporting the School and The Foundation.
The Head of Finance is expected to work closely with the Bursar in supporting the Head, Trustees and Governors to deliver a surplus and more importantly a cash surplus that is sufficient to allow the Foundation to make further investments in facilities and buildings including possible new builds.
The successful candidate is likely to have a background in either finance/accounting and be flexible, energetic, creative and willing to go the “extra mile”. He or she will be positive, open minded, team spirited, hardworking and be ready to develop and learn professionally.
We are looking for an individual with a hunger to understand the school the business and processes with a desire to continue to change and improve what we do and how we do it.
