Full Time

Nottingham College is one of the largest further education colleges in the country creating opportunities for employment and progression to higher education for the people of Nottingham and Nottinghamshire; raising their prosperity and that of the local economy.

An opportunity has arisen to come and join the Nottingham College Finance team as Finance Business Partner. We are looking for someone with a passion for partnering, who will come in and build great working relationships with budget holders as well as being a key player within the finance team.

It is an exciting time to come and join Nottingham College as we see the building of The Hub in Nottingham City Centre which will open to learners next academic year. We will then close some of the older Nottingham College campuses, which for finance, means relocating from Beeston to Nottingham City Centre.

Reporting to Head of Finance, you will be involved in Month end, Budgeting & Forecasting, but most importantly, for your areas, you will be the link between Finance and the rest of the College. We are looking for a candidate who can see the bigger picture, who can monitor budget variances whilst understanding the nature of the business and the challenges it faces. Through well planned, regular meetings with your areas, you will not only review month end results and discuss possible actions but also use the meetings as a chance to ensure we have open communication channels & that we are embedding best practices.

If the role itself isn’t enough, Nottingham College is a great employer to work for. There is a strong commitment to CPD, generous holiday entitlements (39 days plus bank holidays) and access to both student discount and the LGPS pension scheme (14.2%) – to name but a few of the perks!

The post will be shortlisted against the essential and desirable criteria at application stage from the person specification. Please ensure that you have a look at this specification attached to the Role Profile and complete your application directly from this, as these specifications are an integral part of the selection process.

For further details on this post which the job description and person specification cannot answer for you, please contact Jade Rawling (Head of Finance) on 01158842230 or email

The closing date is Friday 27th September 2019 at 11.00pm
Interviews/assessments are planned for Monday 7th October 2019.

Nottingham College is committed to safeguarding and promoting the wellbeing of our students and expects all staff and volunteers to share this commitment. Background checks including employer references and an enhanced DBS check will be required for this role.
