ABOUT ACADEMIES FINANCE
Academies Finance provides high quality and professional Finance Directors, Bookkeepers and Finance Staff to Schools and Academies. Our focus is to ensure you comply with the Academies Financial Handbook, save you time and provide you Value for Money.
Academies Finance was formed by two qualified accountants with a shared goal; to help equip every academy trust and school with a qualified and robust finance team, regardless of its size. We work with academy trusts to recruit finance professionals. From bookkeeper to Chief Financial Officers, we seek out the best talent with a passion for taking on challenging and rewarding roles in the education sector. Unlike local authority maintained schools, academies are responsible for managing their own finances; which are open to public scrutiny. We look to provide trusts and schools with the resources they need to build up capable finance teams that have a broad spectrum of skills and experience and a sound knowledge of the Academies Financial Handbook. We can provide strategic advice on the optimal finance structure for an academy, dealing with an Educations Funding Audit (EFA) or business recovery situation. We can also provide training to both finance and non-finance staff on the latest developments in academy finance.
