Other Vacancies in the Financial Services Division
We currently have opportunities for a number of Executive Officers in FSD as follows:
Executive Officer, Projects Accounting Team
FSD manages the financial affairs of Trinity, processing and reporting on financial transactions as well as providing robust management information to support strategic decision-making within the University. Projects Accounting and Administration is a sub-section of the FSD, which manages the post-award administration of a wide portfolio of externally funded research grants and contracts and capital projects on behalf of the University with a combined value in excess of €950m. Research grant management specifically entails administering circa 1,500 research projects, awarded to over 500 Principal Investigators from over 150 different Sponsors valued at over €650m, across every Discipline and School in the University.
The Financial Services Division (FSD) wishes to appoint an Executive Officer (EO) to join the Projects Administration team. Reporting to the Deputy Projects Accounting Manager, the EO will be expected to provide assistance and support to the team and will be responsible for the financial administration of a discrete portfolio of research accounts (& budgets), aligned to specific sponsors. They will develop specialist knowledge of the unique terms and conditions, reporting requirements etc., associated with those awards, and thus support the PIs (Principal Investigators) in administering their research accounts and, in turn, ensure the successful outcome of Sponsor audits as they arise.
Executive Officers x 3, Accounts Payable Team
Accounts Payable is a sub-section of the FSD, which supports suppliers and purchasers by paying invoices and reimbursements on time, resolving supplier queries, and dealing with all matters relating to payments, including taxation. In doing this, we help Trinity achieve a reputation for prompt payment and excellent supplier management resulting in reduced costs, better discounts and enhanced relationships between suppliers and purchasers. The Accounts Payables Section pays approximately 70,000 invoices and 9,000 reimbursements per annum with a combined value of c€190m.
We require three Executive Officers to work with the Accounts Payable team. The EOs will be part of a large team processing invoices and credits through our Financial Information System, from receipt to payment. They will develop strong working relationships with all stakeholders, suppliers and the University community.
