The Durham and Newcastle Diocesan Learning Trust was born out of the vision of the Durham Diocesan Board of Education to give a further option to both Diocesan and community schools who wished to seek an academy solution, with the launch of the original Durham Diocesan MAT in November 2017. This vision was expanded in 2020 to reflect existing partnership working with the Newcastle Diocesan Education Board and enable the Trust to also become an option for schools within the Newcastle Diocesan area. In November 2020 the Trust formally changed its name to become the Durham and Newcastle Diocesan Learning Trust and amended its Articles and Membership to reflect this wider scope and commitment from both Diocesan Education Boards. The Trust currently contains nine Church of England Primary schools.

Further information about the Trust can be found on its website at Durham Diocesan MAT - Home (durhamdmat.co.uk)

Each school within the Trust has a school business manager or office administrator who carries out day to day finance functions linked to the school. However, the Trust has one central bank account and operates a central finance function to oversee and support each school in line with the Trusts Finance Policy and the Academies Financial Handbook. The central finance team’s role includes managing financial transactions, bank reconciliations, budget setting and monitoring. To support the work of the central Trust team we are seeking a Finance Assistant to work with the Senior Finance Assistant and the Chief Finance Officer to ensure the efficient and effective administration of all central finance aspects of the Trust’s work. The person appointed must be in sympathy with the aims and ethos of the Church of England and ready to work flexibly as part of a small team dedicated to serving the interests of the schools within the Durham and Newcastle Diocesan Learning Trust.
