Finance Business Partner
Our client, a public sector body in Liverpool, has an excellent new opening for an experienced finance business partner to join the team.
Reporting to the Head of Finance, you will be responsible for delivering financial guidance and advice to key parts of the business, with a view to improving the commercial thinking behind the decision making process and developing more efficiency in the way the organisation acts. An important part of this role will be to understand, engage and help the departmental managers in the ways they operate. To do this effectively you will need to build relationships quickly and become embedded in the business. In addition, the opportunity exists for the right person to significantly improve the day to day operation of the Finance Business partnering team itself.
The right candidate will be a qualified accountant, or equivalent, with substantial experience of operating within a financial business partnering context. Ideally you will have worked in both the public and private sector in the past, but what is most important is the ability to have a positive impact on the team around you and swiftly form effective working relationships with a wide range of stakeholders. The desire to add value and deliver change are very important. First rate communication skills will be essential as you will be operating as an interface between finance and non-finance teams.
This is an interesting and unusual opportunity which is likely to challenge even the best, but offers the chance to take your CV to the next level.
