  • Coordinating the budgeting and forecasting process that underpins this management information
  • Acting as lead Finance Business Partner to multiple departments, assisting stakeholders with budget management, risk management and decision making support
  • Planning and coordinate the annual budget for the charity together with quarterly updates and rolling forecasts
  • Leading in developing new methods to report financial and non-financial information for the business, and leading in the implementation of a new reporting and forecasting software

The successful candidate will:

  • Have excellent financial analysis and management reporting experience
  • Be confident drafting board and executive level papers, and confident reporting to senior management
