Job Description

Location: 6th Floor, 100 Wood Street, London, EC2V 7AN

English Heritage cares for over 400 historic monuments, buildings and places. Through these, we bring the story of England to life for over 10 million visitors each year.

English Heritage outsources the majority of its transactional finance functions (as well as a number of other functions) to a Shared Service Provider (SSP), Historic England.

This is a newly created role so the successful candidate will have the scope to develop it to best deliver the objectives.

You'll be responsible for developing processes to ensure appropriate oversight of the finance work undertaken by the SSP, as well as acting as first point of contact for the SSP in relation to finance matters. This will extend to responsibility for reviewing the annual costs charges by the SSP for all shared services, and involvement in intermittent reviews of the levels of shared services and the associated costs.

You'll prepare the consolidated monthly reporting pack for the organisation, as well as monitoring short term cashflow. You'll also lead on the review and ongoing maintenance of finance policies and procedures, ensuring these are fit for purpose as we transition to financial sustainability.

In addition to the above, you'll also ensure, so far as reasonably practical, a safe and secure work environment that does not place people, property, assets, reputation or finances at risk. You'll demonstrate compliance by completing appropriate risk assessments and ensuring the maintenance of your, and where appropriate your team's, training records.

We strive to be an inclusive employer and are always looking for people who reflect the diversity of the country today, to help us make it more relevant to the diversity of the people, communities and places we serve. We continually look for new ways to promote the past in a way that is inclusive to all and that celebrates the cultural diversity of England's heritage.

From remote sites to inner city monuments, from regional teams to our Head Office, the diversity of our teams is critical to making sure our shared heritage is inclusive, exciting and accessible.

You'll find it's a workplace like no other - taking you behind the scenes of these extraordinary sites and supporting you to share your ideas, inspire others and make a difference.

By joining us, you'll enjoy the rewards of a great team environment in inspiring locations, helping to make our site a wonderful place to visit. You'll also be joining our charity, which through our 400+ historic monuments, buildings and sites, brings the story of England to life for over 10 million visitors each year. We offer a competitive benefits package including a generous pension, 25 days leave a year and free entry to all English Heritage properties for you, another adult and up to 6 children (under the age of 19).
