Are you looking for a part time opportunity to add strategic value in a highly respected organisation? Do you want to join a collaborative and diverse team of finance professionals? Are you looking for a role balancing both management accounts and being outward facing around multiple directorates?

My client is a well-known Educational institution in London attracting students from diverse backgrounds. A significant systems project is underway and this role will support stakeholders in various parts of the organisation to get the most out of Finance.

Key responsibilities of the Part Time Finance Business Partner include:

  • Preparation of monthly management accounts with annual budgets totalling over £30m, building reports to keep stakeholders accurately informed of the financial position of their directorates
  • Providing analysis of variances, commentaries and financial information to support senior stakeholders with strategic decision making and development of financial plans
  • Business Partnering with a variety of stakeholders to support them during a period of significant system change
  • Responding to the fast paced and changing needs of specific directorates that have had to react and adapt during the Covid-19 pandemic.

This is a great opportunity for a qualified accountant who is looking for flexibility in their working patterns and seeking a part time, six-month role that can also be career and CV enhancing. Furthermore, the culture of the organisation is friendly, warm and welcoming, so this will particularly suit someone looking to be a true team player even for a short period.

High level Excel skills will be needed as until the implementation of a cloud based system is completed over the summer, Finance is heavily relying on Excel.

The role is expected to be three days a week, though candidates looking for other part time arrangements should still apply as there could be some flexibility on the number of days worked. The expectation as government restrictions change is that the successful candidate would be on site once a week with the remainder of the work done remotely if desired.

To be considered for the Part Time Finance Business Partner role, please meet the criteria below:

  • Be a fully qualified accountant (CCAB or CIMA)
  • Have strong experience in management accounts, as well as being a strong communicator used to providing expert support
  • Be available to start at short notice

Those without experience in the Education sector are still welcome to apply and candidates from commercial backgrounds are likely to be seen highly favourably.   

Please apply immediately if this role is of interest as this role is likely to come off the market before the closing date.
