This is a challenging but rewarding opportunity for a qualified or final stage accountant. The role supports a Senior Finance Business Partner and provides expert advice to senior business managers who are driven to work together to improve the lives of people affected by cancer. The role leads on budgeting and management accounts within an area of Macmillan.

You will need to challenge stakeholders to take the best decisions for the organisation, taking into account the financial impact, most effective use of resources and corporate strategic objectives. In addition, you will be the financial representative on relevant project groups and work closely with managers and budget-holders to provide financial advice and support.

The role includes the opportunity to develop your management skills by managing a Finance Advisor within the team. It also provides scope to develop your business partnering skills and ensure a consistency of approach to budget holders across Macmillan.

Whether charity or commercial, a proven track record in relationship management within a complex organisation is essential. Exposure to a computerised accounting and reporting environment and the ability to use Excel at high level will be important tools to success in this role. You must demonstrate the well-developed communication and interpersonal skills to ensure that financial concepts and information are clear - whoever the audience might be and whatever their level of financial knowledge. A positive and flexible results-focussed outlook will make you a valued resource to the organisation.

In return for your commitment we will actively develop your skills. Our benefits include a 34.5 hour week (with early finish on Fridays), private medical insurance, life assurance, pension, childcare vouchers, generous annual leave, and interest free loans for season ticket and gym membership.
