Salary: circa £50,000 per annum

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.
