The Open University is one of the UK’s most respected national institutions and the market leader in distance higher education. Since it opened to students in 1971, it has been inspiring learning and creating higher educational opportunities to all who wish to realise their ambitions and fulfil their potential, whatever their previous academic attainments. It has demonstrated excellence in research and teaching and confirmed its enormous reach through its use of open educational resources.

To support the University in the current challenging financial climate, the Finance Division is looking for a proactive and self-starting CCAB qualified accountant to join our dynamic team, providing support to the University Executive and other senior staff, for strategic planning and for operational review. This will include the development of management information, processes and systems to support decision making at strategic and operational levels.  You will take specific responsibility for the University’s Transparent Approach to Costing process and support the University’s financial forecasting process.  

In addition to relevant finance related work experience, you will have strong negotiating and communication skills including the ability to engage with, and present solutions to, senior non-finance staff. You must be able to work independently and provide operational and strategic financial direction and leadership, and be willing to undertake a diverse and demanding workload.

This is a challenging but rewarding opportunity for a strongly motivated accountant wanting to contribute to the on-going success of the University.
