We need to recruit someone who can provide the right support and cover to our professional and well qualified finance team during a maternity leave period.

This position will ideally suit someone is who part qualified and is continuing their studies or you may have already achieved your financial qualifications and you want to broaden your experience in a different environment.

Your key role will be to assist in the production of the management accounts, working closely with budget holders (service managers), carrying out monthly review meetings with them to ensure they are managing their budgets effectively. So your ability to communicate well, assist managers to set realistic budgets and provide variance analysis and commentary will be essential if you are to be successful during your time with us.
