Head of Finance
Date posted: 28/01/2021
Duration: 4 - 6 months
Salary: £350 - £400 per day
An interesting new role has arisen for a technically capable Finance Business Partner to lend support and leadership to the finance department of a leading NHS organisation while they approach a busy time of the year.
Working with a specific division of the hospital, it will be your responsibility to lead a small team and ensure that the month-end runs smoothly. This will include overseeing and delivering the year end for the division, in conjunction with the Financial Control team, and fielding the corresponding audit queries. Crucial for this area will be to ensure proper accounting under IFRS15 and IAS20 income recognition.
You should be a qualified accountant, or equivalent, with a strong grasp of accounting standards and good awareness of how to apply them. Although the focus of the role is to deliver the reporting, you will still be acting in a finance business partnering capacity, so experience in this area is important as well. Systems awareness and abilities will be very helpful, but first rate communication skills are essential as you’ll need to rapidly develop effective working relationships across the organisation. You should be available at short notice, as a good handover will be very helpful.
This role offers the opportunity to help develop the service delivered by a team in a changing environment and will offer an engaging challenge to the right candidate.
