Are you a qualified or part-qualified accountant? Are you looking for a new and exciting challenge where you can utilise your excellent organisational and problem-solving skills to support an internationally leading research centre?

The National Centre for Atmospheric Science (NCAS) is a scientific research centre with roles and activities spanning much of the atmospheric sciences. It was created by the Natural Environment Research Council (NERC) in 2001 to meet NERC’s need for national capability provision and scientific leadership in atmospheric science. 

NCAS is hosted by the University of Leeds but operates as a separate entity and organisation and as such, does not draw on standard University strategies. The annual turnover is approximately £16.5 million of core funds with approximately £15 million co-funding, it has a large and complex portfolio, which includes circa 12 collaborating universities and a UKRI Research Centre.

We are now seeking to appoint a qualified or part-qualified accountant to undertake the role of Finance Officer. You will have experience of working in a finance related role with the ability to communicate complex financial information to non-finance specialists. You will have excellent organisational skills with the ability to work accurately and 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.
