Rutherford Cross in partnership with Edinburgh University Students’ Association to appoint a Head of Finance and Business Reporting

Edinburgh University Students’ Association is a student-led charity that offers support to more than 39,500 students. The total income of the Students’ Association is close to £12m, with £8.6m of that figure coming from commercial activities (bars, cafes, shops, nightclubs, a gym and a catering business). The organisation receives an additional £3m in grant income from the University. Some of the income generated is used to run the student support activities, such as The Advice Place, the Peer Support programme or the Activities Office.

Edinburgh University Students’ Association has been on a journey over the last five years and how they operate as an organisation has been central to that journey. The Corporate Services team has recently undergone a small restructure which has resulted in the creation of this position. This newly created role presents the opportunity for the successful candidate not only to have a positive impact on the corporate services team, but on the wider organisation as well.

The role is extremely varied and has overall responsibility for financial and management accounting including sales, purchase and nominal ledgers, payroll, treasury, internal reporting, financial systems, stock control and cash handling functions. The jobholder will liaise with external parties such as auditors and the bank, and with trustees and staff of the Association. A crucial part of this role will be the development and improvement of financial controls, processes and systems.
