Cornwall Education Learning Trust (CELT) is offering an exciting opportunity for two Finance Apprentices to join our dedicated and professional Central Finance Team as soon as possible in September.  The roles will involve providing support to the Finance Team, as well as some data entry for our HR/Payroll and Data Teams.  We are looking for enthusiastic and reliable candidates, with 5 GCSEs at Grade C or equivalent (Level 2 standard of education) including Maths, who are keen to learn and develop their skills. 

You will attend College one day per week to undertake the nationally recognised Level 3 AAT Assistant Accountant Apprenticeship (Level 2 Pathway).  You will learn finance administrator skills such as double entry bookkeeping, basic costing principles, and purchase, sales and general ledgers initially, before progressing onto more complex accountancy processes. 

These roles will be based in Newquay, but there may be a requirement to travel to undertake training and work at or for other academies and sites within the Trust. 

A flexible approach to working hours is required. 

This is an exciting time to join our large and dynamic Trust, which is responsible for educating learners across four secondary schools, one junior school and nine primary schools.
