My client is a leading property manager based in London looking for a Finance Business Partner to join their growing team in an exciting role that acts as the financial lead for the property repairs arm of the business, working on an initial 12-month Fixed Term Contract.

The main responsibilities of the Finance Business Partner are as follows:

  • Liaise closely with senior stakeholders up to director level across the property repairs arm, acting as their expert financial point of contact in the organisation to review and help them to understand their finances.
  • Ensure that the entirety of the property repairs arm is remaining within budget and not running at a loss, as this is a growing and vital part of the organisation, challenging stakeholders on their costs if required.
  • Lead on the preparation of management accounts, budgets and forecasts for the entirety of this highly performing arm of the organisation.
  • Provide invaluable input into company-wide accounts on the financial performance of the property repairs arm, acting as the main point of contact for audit queries related to this area of the business at year-end.

This is a fantastic opportunity for an experienced and ambitious Finance Business Partner to take on a vital role within a consistently growing and highly performing organisation, with this role having the potential to be utilised as a steppingstone towards a managerial position in the future. Furthermore, this organisation offers excellent benefits really prioritising a work/life balance amongst its staff, with regular working from home part of the norm moving forward.

The successful candidate for the Finance Business Partner role will have:

  • Excellent business partnering experience and the ability to effectively communicate financial matters to non-finance members of staff.
  • Significant experience of preparing management accounts, budgets and forecasts.
