Lionheart Educational Trust is looking for an outstanding finance professional to lead a team of finance partners; delivering insightful financial reporting and management. The right candidate will hold a professional finance qualification and will be passionate about building collaborative relationships across the Trust.
This is an exciting opportunity to join a centralised finance team using well-honed systems and processes to deliver a high-quality, proactive and responsive service.
The Trust will support over 12,500 students in their learning and our philosophy is clear. We promote a student-centred approach that is underpinned by the understanding that the highest quality education is a right that all young people deserve regardless of their starting points.
The Trust is looking to make a senior appointment to its finance team and is recruiting a Senior Finance Partner. The post will be based out of Beauchamp City Sixth Form in the heart of Leicester (though the post will also involve working at schools within the Trust).

We currently have staff networks for staff who are Black, Asian and Minority Ethnic (BAME), Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Trans, Queer + (LGBTQ+), staff who would describe their background as working class and staff with a disability.
Lionheart Educational Trust is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children, young people and vulnerable adults and expects all staff and volunteers to share this commitment.
