Gonville & Caius College, one of the largest colleges in the University of Cambridge, seeks to appoint a highly capable accounting professional as Finance Manager following retirement of the existing post-holder.

The College is a self-governing academic community comprising more than 1,000 undergraduates, graduates and academics, supported by 200 staff. It has exceptional facilities including beautiful historic buildings in the city centre as well as further facilities just west and south of the city centre.

The Finance Manager has day to day responsibility for accounting for £20m income and expenditure, and a balance sheet worth over £340m, strategic financial planning, financial reporting, including the annual financial statements and associated regulatory compliance and provision of timely and relevant information to heads of departments and college governance committees, oversight of payroll, administration of restricted trust funds and accounting and reporting on the financial and property investments.

The Finance Manager reports to the Senior Bursar, who is a chartered accountant, and leads a team of 5 finance department staff.

The salary offered is up to £63,486 FTE dependent on experience and is full-time, though with the potential, in due course, of some part-time working or home-working arrangements. In addition to typical college benefits the post-holder is entitled to 33 days holiday and membership of the USS pension scheme.
