    Are you an experienced Accounts Receivable Officer seeking a new and exciting role within the Westminster area? Does the idea of working for a well-respected and influential not -for – profit organisation sound like an interesting move?


    The London Early Years Foundation (LEYF) are the UK’s largest childcare social enterprise. As a registered charity, we believe that our 37 nurseries across London have a duty to be a part of and support their local communities, to break down barriers by offering quality childcare to all local families. We believe that every child has the right to a quality education and care. Our LEYF Pedagogy (teaching model) has been designed to ensure all children in our care receive the very best in quality education using methods designed specifically for their age group at our settings and at home.



    LEYF is a bold and entrepreneurial organisation aiming to consolidate its central office support services and continue to increase in size in the next three years. To help secure its ambitions, LEYF is looking to recruit an Accounts Receivable Lead that can focus and deliver consistent results, who is able to support the Accounts Receivable Manager in the day-to-day delivery of the accounts receivable processes, analysis and reporting required of the Finance Team as LEYF strives towards its strategy to reach 5,000 children.


    This post holder will also need to support the Nurseries and Central Office by providing timely, accurate and compliant accounts receivable information that enables the organisation, at all levels, to take informed decisions. The post holder will need to work as part of a team to ensure LEYF meets its statutory obligations with regard to information, confidentiality and security across a network of self-contained business units.


    So LEYF is looking for someone who is either qualified by experience, AAT or a part-qualified accountant who wants to work in an environment where there is the ‘day-to day’ and there is the opportunity to be involved in projects that need ‘Superhero’ and ‘Superstars’.


    As part of the LEYF family you will be entitled to:

    • 50% off childcare within one of our settings
    • Flexible working available
    • 7% employer contribution pension scheme
    • Life assurance
