Reporting to the Deputy Director of Finance, the Finance Manager role is responsible for managing and overseeing the day-to-day divisional finance support for one of the Trusts’ Operational Divisions, together with providing management information and reports on a broad range of financial and administrative issues. Working closely with the Corporate Finance function, you will ensure that robust processes and controls exist within your area to manage financial risk, provide accurate and timely reporting, and drive the development of improved systems and processes.
You will provide expert, specialist and in-depth financial advice and support to the Operational Division, Director of Finance, Deputy Director of Finance and senior Operational and Clinical managers in provision of financial services to the Trust whilst ensuring financial probity and compliance with Standing Financial Instructions, Standing Orders and other policies of the Trust at all time. This will involve the expert analysis of highly complex financial information, and the ability to concisely communicate to non-financial stakeholders the output of financial analysis to assist in financial decision making. You will also update policies and processes as necessary, and be expected in helping to shape future service developments and drive process improvements. You will be required to contribute specialist technical accounting and business knowledge, strong analytical skills, and communicate complex finance issues to non-finance colleagues, whilst operating autonomously.
