The Finance Business Partner - Senior Manager will provide challenge and support to the business in order to achieve the British Business Bank's strategic plan. You will act as a key interface between Finance and the product teams by developing and maintaining accurate knowledge and understanding of the investment portfolios contained within the programmes. The role involves building processes, designing management information (MI) and investigating and documenting how the Bank's products impact its financial statements. It is a role requiring an individual to apply a fundamental understanding of finance to a diverse range of financial products, which receive relatively complex accounting treatments. The role is not routine, and it is essential that the role holder be a proactive problem-solver who can work with minimal support.

It is essential that you have experience of budgeting and performance management and you will be a fully qualified chartered accountant (e.g. CIMA, ACA, ACCA). It is desirable that you have experience of analysing products within a financial services environment with knowledge of building new capabilities and board reporting.
We support flexible working and whilst this position will report to our Sheffield office when restrictions are lifted, we would also welcome applications from those candidates who may require/prefer to continue with an element of home working.
As a Senior Manager at the Bank it is expected that you will role model candour and integrity, you will support the wellbeing of colleagues, encourage diversity of thought, and strive for continuous improvement.
