Finance Business Partner
We are looking for a Finance Business Partner with strong communication skills and a positive attitude.
You will ideally be seeking a full-time role, though applications from strong candidates for part time, (three or four days per week), will also be considered.
Working as a trusted business partner to senior managers and their teams, you will provide core aspects of the Finance function including budget setting, forecasting and review, reporting and delivering management reports to support effective decision making, closure of accounts, completion of financial returns and finance project work.
You will be responsible for delivering good financial control and management by ensuring financial regulations and practices are consistently and robustly applied.
You will be a technically astute accountant, who is CIPFA (or equivalent) qualified with a strong management accounting, financial analysis or business partnering background. Familiarity with financial systems is essential as is the ability to work well under pressure.
This is a highly visible role that would suit a confident communicator who enjoys business partnering and influencing senior management. You will be proactive, adaptable, have a 'can do' approach and have the ability to challenge thinking.
What can we offer in return?
You will be working as part of a friendly and professional team who are highly valued by the services they support. Work is varied and no two days are the same.
We pride ourselves on our friendliness and being a good employer with a range of benefits and employment terms and conditions to suit you. A competitive salary (Pay Award Pending), generous annual leave entitlement, the opportunity for hybrid working, Local Government Pension Scheme, work life balance policies, and support for your personal development are just some of the benefits we offer.
