Job Description

Would you be at home in an organisation that constantly updates its business plan to focus on providing a consistently sector-leading service? Do you want to represent Finance in a role exposed to the entire business, providing a vital service to budget holders? Are you a qualified accountant with first class interpersonal skills?

My client is a large London-based property developer and housing provider currently undergoing a significant period of change and growth. The Finance Business Partner will join a close-knit team that works around the business to provide crucial budgetary advice to internal and external stakeholders. Key responsibilities include:

*Building relationships across all levels of the organisation, liaising with around 20 budget managers and stakeholders, most notably in the asset management and Housing services areas
*Provide management with expert financial information and sound advice, recommending the best practice and enabling them to make informed decisions as to the best use of their budgets
*Understand financial performance, identify risks and opportunities, and use your expertise to influence decision makers in difficult key financial matters
*Provide insightful forecasting, budgeting and commentaries on the Management Accounts within agreed timescales
*Encourage inclusive and proactive links between Finance and the rest of the organisation and enable Finance to be seen as a powerful resource rather than a barrier to improvement.

The last few years have been highly successful and have led into the current phase of growth and development. The role offers the chance to work flexibly in a bright and modern environment wherein personal progression is constantly addressed as a key focus.

To be considered, you must:
*Be a qualified accountant
*Demonstrate a history of building relationships to influence and challenge decision makers
*Have strong understanding of budgeting, forecasting and the production of management accounts. A background in medium/large organisations is highly preferred.
