To start: September 1, 2020.

Are you a qualified accountant/have a degree in Business Management with financial and premises management experience looking for a challenging new role?

This is an exciting opportunity for a professional, highly organised and customer-focused manager to provide financial management and premises management at Colne Valley High School (CVHS), Huddersfield, a large secondary school of 1,350 students.  You will also be responsible for the financial management of Marsden Junior School with 210 pupils located 4 miles away from CVHS.
