‘Staff say the headteacher and other leaders are ‘genuine’ in their attempts to lessen workload and improve well-being’ Ofsted January 2020

Northfield School is a large 11-16 school and specialist sports college. We are an ambitious and inclusive school with state of the art facilities and interactive technology in a well-resourced newly refurbished main building and a separate new Year 7 school.

Following an inspection in January 2020, Ofsted judged that the school continues to be good and acknowledged all the positive work being undertaken to improve it further. This is a great time to join the school.

We are looking to appoint an experienced Finance Assistant to cover maternity leave. The role has a varied remit across a range of finance and administrative duties, within a proactive and busy school office environment.

The successful candidate will have excellent and accurate numeracy and literacy skills and an ability to use ICT and other specialist resources effectively. An ability to work on own initiative as well as part of a team is essential. Experience in the use of school financial systems such as Agresso or similar would be beneficial.

We can offer you:
- an enthusiastic, talented and supportive team
- a newly built and superbly resourced teaching and learning environment
- excellent opportunities for CPD
- a staff health and well being programme
- a warm, friendly and positive working environment where everyone is valued
