Two years on from our merger to form the UK’s respiratory charity, we stand at an exciting point in our long history. In the new year, we’ll be launching a bold and ambitious new strategy that builds on our merger, and unleashes our potential as a single voice for people’s lung health.
As part of this exciting period of change Asthma UK and the British Lung Foundation are partnering with Allen Lane to appoint a Finance Business Partner, this is a great opportunity for a candidate who is confident in collaborating with non-finance teams, providing financial management and delivering projects.
Reporting into the Head of Finance Business Partnering this is a key role and you will be required to: own the end-to-end processes behind budgeting, forecasting and complex financial modelling; prepare management accounts and supporting analysis and narrative for presentation to the Executive Team and Board and provide strategic direction to the team.

The successful candidate will additionally have a positive track record of dealing with stakeholders and have strong Excel skills.
This role would be a great fit for a candidate who is ambitious and willing to learn who wants a direct impact on an organisation.

ACCA is more akin to Financial Accounting, so possibly not the best fit here? Have added in CIPFA so we don’t lose potential candidates.
