We are currently recruiting for one of the UK’s leading Foundation Trusts and teaching hospitals. Due to transformational changes within the Finance team, a requirement for a number of Directorate Accountants has arisen. The post of Directorate Accountant will be the key post between the Clinical Services and the rest of the finance team, providing strategy and support to General Managers within your assigned clinical area. The Directorate Accountant will be supported by a Deputy Directorate Accountant, who will help out with some of the more transactional duties.
This is an exciting time to be joining this particular Trust; with the structural changes that are taking place, we are looking for ambitious and talented Directorate Accountants to complement these changes. You will be the engines of the finance team, providing strategy and support to the Heads of Finance and the services themselves.
Some of your key responsibilities will include:
- Providing financial information, advice and support to your directorate, meeting regularly with the members of the management team to ensure that the financial position is understood
- Providing the Heads of Finance with the relevant information so that assurance can be gained that all relevant costs, income and financial risks within the directorate are reported
- Supporting with the planning and coordinating the annual budget setting process for the directorate
- Developing and maintaining an integrated financial performance report and coordinating the monthly reporting and analysis
The successful applicant will be a CCAB-qualified accountant with at least one to two years post-qualification experience. You will come from the NHS, wider public or commercial sectors. Applicants will strive to meet deadlines by setting and negotiating priorities for themselves and their teams. Your attention to detail and your verbal and written communication skills will be outstanding to a range of stakeholders and you will be able to convey complex finance information to non-finance managers.
