Robertson Bell are exclusively partnering with Look Ahead Care and Support to recruit a Senior Finance Business Partner for their fast-paced Finance team. Look Ahead is a unique organisation that provides specialist services across four key demographics: Learning Disabilities, Homelessness, Mental Health, and Care Leavers. Their turnover has grown steadily over the last 10 years and is now approaching £70m, with the majority of their income coming from providing care and support to some of the most vulnerable in society.
With head offices near Westminster and Pimlico station in Central London, the role of the Senior Finance Business Partner reports to the Director of Finance and acts as the “face” of finance, operating in a highly visible position by regularly visiting budget holders to be a true Partner, bridging the gap between Finance and the outside business. You will oversee a team responsible for the production of management accounts and providing financial information to aid senior management’s decision making.
Additional key accountabilities include:
Look Ahead is an organisation unlike any other – its range of services and focus on service users mean that while following Housing SORP, they operate in many respects like a commercial organisation. This role should therefore appeal to candidates who want to work in the not-for-profit sector whilst maintaining the pace, drive and commerciality of a large business.
In due course, this role has the potential to grow into a more senior role and take on more responsibility across finance as you develop underneath a supportive Director of Finance. On offer is an excellent benefits package including generous annual leave entitlement, as well as the opportunity to buy and sell annual leave. You will have a flexible working location, based from head offices that are clean, bright and welcoming.
