RSA Academies Co-ordinator

Circa £24,924 per annum (commensurate with skills and experience) + benefits (£17,802.86 pro-rata)

25 hours per week over a five day working week


An exciting opportunity has arisen in the RSA Academies Team for a proactive and meticulous administrator with a background in financial administration.

You will support the small RSA Academies team, with particular responsibility for finance, by ensuring the effective management of our £250,000 budget, and communications, including updating the RSA Academies website

This opportunity would most suit someone with strong experience of financial administration.  The post is likely to appeal to someone who takes pride in ensuring that finance and other administrative systems run smoothly, would enjoy working as part of a small and friendly team, and is also happy to take the initiative and ‘lend a hand’ where necessary.  

The post will be based at the RSA’s historic buildings in Central London.  It is offered on a part time basis of 25 hours per week Monday to Friday, with a suggested working day of 9.30 – 3.30 (including an hour for lunch).  There is some flexibility to amend these hours to fit in with applicants’ other responsibilities, but we are looking for someone to be in the office five days a week.

The RSA established RSA Academies in 2011 to work at the heart of education policy with a “Family of Academies”.  RSA Academies works with seven schools as a partner or sponsor, and plans to gradually increase the number of schools we work with over the next few years.
