Finance Assistant

Do you have experience of working in a finance related role using generic or bespoke finance systems? Would you like to utilise your excellent organisational and problem solving skills to support a world leading centre for atmospheric science? If so, we’d like to hear from you! 

The National Centre for Atmospheric Science (NCAS) is one of the six research centres supported by the Natural Environment Research Council (NERC). NCAS pursues long-term research in Climate and High Impact Weather, Air Pollution and Long-Term Global Change. In addition, NCAS provides UK research scientists and others with services and facilities in atmospheric science through the FAAM Airborne Laboratory (FAAM), the Atmospheric Measurement and Observation Facility, the Centre for Environmental Data Analysis, and the Computational Modelling Services. The annual budget is approximately £30m. NCAS is entirely embedded within several universities and other organisations, including the universities of Leeds, Manchester, York, Reading and Cranfield along with the Rutherford Appleton Laboratory. We have over 200 members of staff, all of whom are employed by their local host institutions.

We are now seeking to appoint a Finance Assistant to join the team at NCAS Headquarters, based at the University of Leeds. You will have experience of working in a finance related role with the ability to communicate financial information to non-finance specialists. You will have excellent organisational skills and will be able to work accurately, to tight deadlines. Enthusiastic, flexible and conscientious, you take a proactive approach to your work and will have the ability to work well both within a team and independently.
