  • Strong spreadsheet skills
  • Forecasting and budgeting as you will play a key role in this and liaise with different departments, assisting them to put their budgets together
  • Expenditure analysis monthly
Other aspects to the role, which you may or may not have covered ( training can be given in these areas) include:
  • Preparing the college's statutory accounts
  • All aspects of VAT including exemptions
  • Use of Sage 200
Ideally, to secure an interview, you will be a qualified accountant with the ability to learn and to communicate effectively and clearly at all levels.
