It’s not all about the money!

It’s not all about the money!

Education is not all about money, but as we know looking after the ‘coppers’ is important to any organisation. It’s no different at Borders College and that’s why we are seeking to employ two staff in key roles, within our finance team.

  • Financial Controller – Salary £42,656
  • Finance Business Partner – Salary £42,656

Borders College employs over 300 staff and this is your opportunity to become part of one of the most successful colleges in Scotland.

The post-holders will be based at our Scottish Borders Campus in Galashiels, where we share the campus with Heriot-Watt University. Galashiels is accessible on the Borders Railway from Edinburgh in 50 minutes.

Advising and leading on financial matters, the jobholders will report directly to our Vice Principal – Finance and Corporate Services as well as being part of our Senior Leadership Team.

You’ll be joining the College at an exciting time as we invest in both resources and people which will see a number of key initiatives, which aim to ensure that we play our part in creating sustainable and economic development opportunities for the South of Scotland, come to fruition.

Borders College is all about education and training and, as such, we are proud to invest in our own staff. Perhaps you’re ready for the next stage of your career! In which case there’s an opportunity for you within our forward-thinking organisation. We are proud to be currently training 35 staff on our Middle Manager’s Development and Talent Development Programmes as part of their continuous professional development.

So, if you see yourself as having excellent communication skills and you’re a team player who is self-motivated then one of these jobs could be for you. You’ll be crucial members of our finance team, and both positions are permanent and attract great conditions of service.

As a Disability confident employer, we look to draw from the widest possible pool of talent available.

All of our staff work to the College’s Vision, Values and Behaviours, which have been developed by our staff groups over the years.

Please note the closing date for these posts is Monday 27th May 2019.
