An exciting opportunity for an enthusiastic professional to work within a developing and growing MAT

Tandridge Learning Trust (TLT) was established in May 2017 by a group of schools that understood the importance of local schools serving their local community, common core values and the commitment to meeting the needs of every child. We recognise and respect the unique culture and ethos of each individual school and have high aspirations for every child and every school; sharing best practice and inter-school collaboration to improve teaching, learning and outcomes for children.

TLT is a multi-academy trust of five schools, consisting of one secondary and four primaries.  A key objective of the Trust is to undertake considered expansion over the next five years, growing to between 6 and 10 schools.  To enable us to achieve this objective the Trust is restructuring its central operations team for the 2018-19 academic and financial year. Arrangements to support the year end and audit for the 17/18 financial year are already in place.


The MAT Finance Manager is responsible for the financial management and statutory reporting requirements of the MAT.

This will include:

  • maintaining the financial accounting systems for the Trust, ensuring compliance with key financial guidance and legislative requirements
  • development, monitoring and implementation of appropriate financial policies and procedures.
  • responsibility for financial management and reporting at school level and consolidation of management accounts and statutory reporting for the MAT
  • managing the transition process of converting schools


This will be an exciting opportunity for you if you are someone who enjoys working with a variety of people. The successful candidate must be able to rise to the technical financial challenge, as well as being able to communicate effectively with senior leaders and finance and business colleagues, enabling the best possible outcomes for children.
