Your new company - Based in the heart of Whitehall, my client is a high profile Central Government organisation at the core of UK politics.
Your new role - The Head of Financial Planning & Analysis is responsible for leading on financial planning, costing, forecasting and reporting for the organisation. The post holder will be required to regularly report on financial and other performance measures to support effective decision-making across all business areas and help the organisation run efficiently and effectively. The role will require networking with key stakeholders at all levels of the organisation to provide financial advice and expertise as well as supporting on wider Corporate Finance initiatives. You will line manage a team of two.
What you'll need to succeed - You will be a qualified Accountant with proven experience in financial planning, forecasting and reporting. You will have strong customer and business focus with significant experience of providing advice and guidance to managers at all levels. You will be able to access, analyse and interpret data from a range of sources to aid effective decision making and you will be a strong team leader. Experience of working in the civil service would be useful but is by no means essential.
What you'll get in return - The salary bracket is £49,500 - £56,000 but they are likely to offer towards the lower end. You will be on a defined benefit pension scheme, 30 days annual leave as well as flexible working and access to a range of onsite cafeterias and restaurants. You will also be working in the heart of Government.
