Finance Staff Supply Cover

Do you need to cover your Finance Officer / Business Manager’s absence or vacancy?

If so, choosing EES for Schools' Education Finance Support Team gives you the confidence of knowing that you will receive a dedicated quality service tailored to your school’s or academy's individual needs. Our Education Finance Consultants have extensive knowledge and experience of working within a large number of both primary and secondary schools and academies, using best practice financial procedures so you can be assured that statutory financial requirements are met, i.e. CFR (Consistent Financial Reporting) & AFH (Academies Financial Handbook); you also benefit from having someone who is up to date with the ever changing and complex area of education finance.

For a longer term arrangement, you may decide to put your vacancy on hold and consider having one of our consultants provide you with regular defined financial visits. This could prove to be cost effective to your school/academy in the long term as well as allowing you the flexibility to choose the hours and days you require for a set period.

  • Ordering and Invoicing
