Duration: 6 months

Salary: £280 - £300 per day


Our client is a leading NHS Trust in the Midlands which has an opportunity for an experienced Senior Financial & Capital Accountant to join the team and cover while the organisation goes through a period of change.

Working with the Financial Controller, this position will be responsible for accurate reporting and forecasting in relation to capital, drawing together key aspects of the monthly reporting, looking after treasury and cash management, reviewing the control accounts, and managing a small team.  Owing to the range of people you will be working with, you will need to form effective working relationships with a variety of contacts.  The work will span a range of tasks from influencing others priorities to some hands on technical work.

You should be a qualified financial accountant, or equivalent, with a strong technical understanding of IFRS and appreciation of the NHS financial regime from a provider perspective. Experience of capital accounting within a trust will be very helpful.  Perhaps you will come from an audit background originally, but you will need to demonstrate a thorough understanding of the monthly reporting process and have an appreciation of the pressures that apply for key deadlines. First rate prioritisation and communication skills will also be important in the scheduling of the team’s work.

This will be a challenging role, but is likely to give you a strong overview of the hospital.
