The Financial Reporting and Compliance Team covers a broad range of areas including statutory financial reporting, cash flow forecasting and treasury management and external regulatory compliance. We advise people across the University on a wide range of topics where financial policies, procedures and controls need to be considered.

We offer a wide range of benefits and opportunities to pursue a rewarding and fulfilling career in a supportive environment.
