Summary of the role

We are looking for a meticulous and detail-oriented Education Support Administrator (Finance and Payments) with excellent communication and organisational skills to help us process payments relating to the delivery of the BMBS (Medical) Programme in Devon.

You will be responsible for the day-to-day management of finance administration with oversight for both internal and external communications. You will use advanced Excel skills to analyse and interpret complex data, process payments accurately and efficiently and maintain accurate records of all financial transactions and documentation. You will have the ability to build effective and credible working relationships and liaise confidently with your stakeholders.

This role offers an exciting opportunity to support the delivery of the financial components of the BMBS programme working flexibly both as part of a team and independently with confidence and reliability.

You will be looking to take on a rewarding role where your finance expertise and analytical skills will be utilised in a busy environment as part of a committed programme team. You will bring excellent organisation skills, attention to detail and a proven ability to work independently and prioritise tasks effectively.
