We are seeking an experienced and highly motivated school finance officer to maintain the high standards of our post holder who will be taking maternity leave immediately after the summer holiday.  The role is part-time, 28 hours per week and we can be flexible on working pattern by agreement.

The main requirements of the role are:

* An understanding and willingness to adhere to safeguarding policies and procedures in school.

In return, we offer flexible working hours by agreement, a private office in which to work, support and advice from an Ealing Bursarial officer if required, a friendly and supportive working environment.  In addition, our school is in a conservation area close to Ealing Broadway and Park Royal transport links and adjacent to a beautiful park.

The role is linked to the maternity leave of the post holder and so will cease upon her return and after a handover has taken place.  We will give as much notice as possible of this and at least three weeks.  The post holder will begin her maternity leave in August and so there will be a requirement for the appointee to attend for a handover before the end of the summer term.  This will, of course, be paid.
