Graduate Finance Officer

Finance at NTU are an experienced team from diverse commercial and public sector backgrounds. We're seeking a candidate for the role of Graduate Finance Officer who can demonstrate potential, talent, skills and ambition to contribute to the success of the University.

Department: Finance
Location: City Campus
Salary: £23,500 p.a.

NTU is one of the largest employers in the region. Our academic staff are engaged in industry-leading education and ground-breaking research. Importantly, we also pride ourselves on the creativity of colleagues working in professional services.

Finance at NTU are an experienced and talented team from diverse commercial and public sector backgrounds, who provide guidance and innovative solutions to the University. Through our business partnering model, we are actively involved in, and bring influence to bear on all major business decisions.

The Finance team are seeking a candidate who can demonstrate potential, talent, skills and ambition to contribute to the success of the University. You'll experience the real business world, quickly developing the specific skills required in the finance sector and the transferable skills demanded by the workplace. As an employee, you will work on live departmental projects and be given the responsibility and the scope to use your initiative in a business environment, with opportunities to gain broad experience of planning, reporting, business intelligence, and financial and management accounting.

We promise you a rewarding experience in a progressive and innovative financial environment. By working in our Finance team you'll be exposed to a completely different set of challenges you're unlikely to experience elsewhere.

During the graduate placement you'll have the opportunity to meet and engage with other young professionals and graduates working within the Finance department, build your networks, and develop an understanding and insight into the other aspects of our business. You'll get support to help you reflect on your performance and identify the skills to be successful.

  • improve your workplace skills
  • advance your leadership skills
  • build your confidence
  • provide you with employment experience.

Applications from job seekers who require Tier 2 sponsorship to work in the UK are welcome and will be considered alongside all other applications.
