Senior Finance Business Partner
A great opportunity has arisen within the public and not for profit sector for an experienced Finance Business Partner to lead and continue the development of the team which is the key financial interface with the organisation.
Responsible for consolidating the management reporting and leading the engagement with the business, this is a crucial role in financial guidance, advice and, ultimately, helping to facilitate the operation of the organisation in a positive, communicative and prudent manner. The team, which deal with the day to day interactions with the business, have recently been successfully shaped into a business partnering unit, but there is more work to be done to continue its evolution into a fully commercially savvy department, and this will be a key objective. Having said that the role is broad and,as a senior member of the management team, the post holder will contribute to a number of organisation wide projects and working groups, providing advice to directors and senior managers.
You should be a qualified accountant, or equivalent, with a strong post qualification experience in a finance business partnering capacity. You will need to demonstrate not only the ability to interact with the business, but capable and empathetic management skills plus a full technical financial understanding. As alluded to, good commercial awareness will be viewed positively. Owing to the nature of the organisation and the range of people you’ll be liaising with, you need to have first rate communication skills and the ability to manage multiple deadlines.
This is a great chance to lead and develop a great team, whilst building on your own experience and working for a well known organisation.
