Rutherford Cross Retained by The High School of Glasgow to Appoint a Finance Manager

The High School of Glasgow is an independent, co-educational day school with around 900 pupils aged between 3 and 18 and its roots go back to 1124. The School motto is Sursum Semper, which translates as “ever upwards”; encapsulating the constant and unwavering commitment to improving and enriching the lives of every child who walks through its doors.

The High School of Glasgow offers an all-round education with high levels of both academic and pastoral support. The institution is a high-achieving school; academically and in numerous sports. The organisation strongly believes in continuity and laying down firm foundations. The opportunity of a nursery through to young adult education offers a safe and secure passage of personal discovery and growing societal awareness. The school also welcomes pupils at any stage along this journey.

The Finance Manager position is a full-time, permanent, senior support role, reporting directly to the COO / CFO. This role will suit a qualified finance professional with the ability to support and challenge budget holders, whilst leading a small finance team.

The post-holder will assist in developing all aspects of financial management within the school, including the provision of financial reporting and analysis, and recommendations to the COO / CFO. The Finance Manager will possess strong financial accounting skills, strong analytical and Excel capabilities and a proactive and pragmatic approach to improving financial processes and controls.
