Finance Apprentice

Apprentice Finance Consultant (Education sector)

37 hours per week (to include release time for college / studying / exams)
£6.50ph (£12,500 pa) + client travel and study costs

Must be flexible to travel to clients and have own transport – predominantly across Kent, Surrey, Sussex, Essex and London.

The company
Our client is an established consultancy company working in the education finance sector. Now in their 9th year of trading they are looking to grow the team.

They have many new projects on the horizon, so although they need someone to add support during this growth period, they are looking for you to continue your career with them. Therefore, although this is an Apprenticeship role, they are looking for the successful candidate to remain with them long after you gain your qualification(s).

They are a friendly team and have a positive, upbeat, happy culture. They pride themselves on being flexible and provide a good work life balance, but in return they want and expect commitment, passion and hard work.

This role will be based at your home address and will require regular travel to clients’ premises. Mileage will be reimbursed to you at the HMRC rate.

The Role
As an Apprentice you will gain fantastic insight and experience into the education finance sector whilst they support you to become AAT qualified.

The AAT qualification is one of the most recognised in the Finance industry and could lead to you studying for your ACCA or equivalent through them if you so wish.

You will be supported through your training with the firm; shadowing consultants on site to start with and then being able to assist us with finance assistant roles; working your way up to consultancy days as you gain experience.
Some days will require home working, therefore a high level of self-motivation is required.

They also run a Helpdesk and have designed various software packages; so, if you like IT as well as finance then you will never be bored with this company!

The Person
Due to this being an apprentice role there isn’t a list of skills that you are required to have, but any finance, mathematics or business-related studies would be beneficial.

They are looking for someone with a great work ethic who is confident in face to face situations and wants to build a career in finance. They must have strong communication skills both oral and written.

There is great satisfaction from their work, and they pride themselves on delivering the best possible service to all of their clients – so this must be important to you also.

As a member of the team you will be expected to present a professional image of yourself and the company at all times.

You will need a clean driving licence and access to a vehicle. You will also need a clean enhanced DBS check which will be initiated by the company at the time of employment.
