The Dwight School community has a rich diversity of cultures, nationalities and experiences, with over 50 nationalities represented and over 40 languages spoken which we truly benefit from and cherish.

Dwight is a values-driven organisation and we welcome applications from individuals who share our vision to nurture confident, compassionate young people who influence the future as well as committing to the IB philosophy of educating for a better, more peaceful world.

The Accounts Assistant will report to the Finance Manager and Head of Finance.
