Looking to play a key role in an industry leading organisation? Are you an experienced finance professional looking for that exciting next career move?

My client is a leading Government body based in Newport, looking for a Senior Finance Officer to join the team in a wonderfully broad and varied role.

The main responsibilities of the Senior Finance Officer role are as follows:

  • Liaise closely with a variety of senior level staff to review their finances, providing them with invaluable expert financial advice to ensure that they are remaining within budget and not overspending.
  • Lead on the preparation of management accounts, budgets and forecasts.
  • Assist in the review of the budget, highlighting any variances that there may be challenging stakeholders on this.
  •  Producing clear and robust variance analysis and explanations for finance colleagues

This is an excellent opportunity for an assistant accountant or assistant management accountant to take on a hugely broad and varied role that can be utilised as an excellent stepping stone towards a Finance Business Partner position in the future.

The successful candidate for the Senior Finance Officer role will have:

  • Part qualified accountant (ACCA/ACA/CIMA)
  • Experience of ideally assisting on the budget setting process but at the very minimum must have been part of this process. 
  • Previous experience of explaining financial information to non-finance members of staff.
  • Intermediate Microsoft Excel skills (vlookups, pivot tables, etc.)
