The Board of Directors (Trustees) for the Diocese of Worcester Multi-Academy Trust (DoWMAT) are seeking to appoint an outstanding and highly motivated Accounts Assistant for this exciting new role within the Central Team.
DoWMAT was established in September 2016 and serves a growing number of academies (currently 14) within the Diocese of Worcester, which encompasses the Local Authorities of Worcester and Dudley. All are deeply committed to implementing a collaborative approach to developing and securing excellent educational provision for all our pupils. DoWMAT welcomes both church and non-church schools into the Trust. DoWMAT is a young MAT with high aspirations for its stakeholders, aiming to create futures for all. In a relatively short period, we have established strong governance and leadership structures as the foundations for future growth.
We strongly believe that this appointment will further strengthen the support we are able to provide to our academies. Working closely with the Head of Finance, the successful candidate will be an enthusiastic, quick learner with excellent communication, numerical and administrative skills. They should be able to work independently whilst at the same time forming effective relationships with stakeholders. Experience in a financial role and knowledge of financial procedures would be an advantage, however full training will be given whilst getting established within the role. The role will provide excellent career development for the successful candidate, giving the opportunity to learn whilst assisting the Trust to flourish and grow as a successful Multi Academy Trust.
We can offer:
• Opportunities for individualised CPD and other training
• A dynamic, committed, friendly and hard-working central staff team
• Wide ranging experience working alongside knowledgeable and experienced colleagues
• Enrolment to the Local Government Pension Scheme
• Child Care Vouchers
The Worcester Diocese Multi Academy Trust is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of all children and preventing extremism. In order to meet this responsibility, our schools follow a rigorous selection process to discourage and screen out unsuitable applicants.
DoWMAT requires all employees to undertake an enhanced DBS check. You are required, before appointment, to disclose any unspent conviction, cautions, reprimands or warnings under the Rehabilitation of Offenders Act 1974 (Exceptions) Order 1975. Nondisclosure may lead to termination of employment. However, disclosure of a criminal background will not necessarily debar you from employment - this will depend upon the nature of the offence(s) and when they occurred.
