We are looking for an enthusiastic, studying, finance professional to join the Trusts Finance Community Health Services Team, playing a key role in shaping what our service delivery looks like and making a difference in the challenging financial environment, both now and in the future.

The applicant should currently be studying for their CCAB qualification and be looking to qualify within the next 2 and a half years. On achievement of the CCAB qualification and progression through a competency framework there will be the opportunity to progress to a Band 7 Finance Partner role.

Main duties of the job

The successful candidate will support the Community Health Services Division and provide comprehensive financial advice and support managers to understand the efficiency and effectiveness of resources within their control. They will need to be persuasive when dealing with conflicting priorities and ensure that financial opportunities and risks are quantified and understood at all levels of the Trust, and optimum value for money is achieved.

The Trainee Finance Partner will liaise closely with Divisional and Trust stakeholders in an outward-facing role to utilise their financial acumen to support in the development of annual plans, forecasts and identification of key risks and mitigations to delivery of the plan.
