Are you on the lookout to take on a senior finance role in a leading public sector organisation? Are you a respected leader, known for your ability to lead high performing teams through challenging times? Are you an expert in adding value with your financial insight? Are you available for a quick start in a role where you’ll have a huge impact in a short timeframe?

I’m working with a leading public sector organisation to recruit a Deputy Director of FP&A on a 6-9 month FTC. The team is in the aftermath of a restructure which has led to the creation of a Finance Business Partnering team that is more cohesive and collaborate and able to provide better value to its stakeholders. With a systems project underway at the same time, the Deputy Director of FP&A will:

  • Lead the newly formed Finance Business Partnering team and oversee the delivery of the financial support to stakeholders
  • Lead on budgeting and forecasting, plus the delivery of the medium term financial plan
  • Business Partner at the most senior levels to provide strategic financial insight to guide decision making
  • Use high level financial modelling skills to provide accurate costing of new programmes.

This is a rare opportunity for someone to join on a contract basis and have a grand scope of influence over an organisation with ambitious plans for success. The role is based in London though a hybrid working model is already showing excellent signs of success.

To be considered, you should:

  • Be a fully qualified finance leader, ideally with experience in the public sector, and experience of leading highly successful teams during periods of complex change
  • Be a true expert in budgeting, forecasting and management reporting
  • Hold exceptional financial modelling skills and the ability to challenge, influence and support stakeholders at the most senior levels.

Applications are continually reviewed and the post can close when the right candidate comes forward – if you fit the bill, please don’t delay your application.
