Our featured job of the week is for an NHS Foundation Trust in London who are now seeking to appoint a Director of Finance who will report into and work closely with their Chief Financial Officer (CFO). As well as being a critical organisational role in its own right, this role also offers a fantastic development opportunity for the right candidate.
The Trust s a complex and busy mental health trust serving diverse and vibrant local communities across seven London Boroughs in south London with a combined population of nearly 2 million people. They provide specialist services for people from across the UK and recently have launched their services in the Middle East. They have recently been successful in securing additional funding for their Biomedical Research Centre from the National Institute for Health Research and have an extensive training and education portfolio.
In 2015 they were inspected by the CQC and received the overall rating of ‘Good’. They are also pleased that the Trust was chosen as one of the best 100 places to work by the Health Service Journal (HSJ) in July 2015, which recognises how they are working hard to create and maintain an environment where people can enjoy their work and maximise their contribution in an open and transparent culture.
Whilst the balance of work for the Director of Finance will be primarily operational and reporting directly to the CFO, you will work closely as a team and the CFO will actively encourage you to lead specific strategic pieces of work at Board level both inside and outside the organisation.
You will be joining the Trust at a very exciting point in its history. As most are aware, these are very challenging times for NHS finances but they are also times of huge opportunity for finance professionals to contribute to the transformation of the services we provide. The focus in the Trust and of their strategy is to increase the value that their services add to the lives of patients, their carers and the populations they serve and you will play a key part in shaping our future.
The Trust want to recruit someone who shares the same passion for their values and vision for improving the lives of the populations they serve and who will lead their finance team with a relentless focus on the value, quality and responsiveness of the financial services they deliver and promote innovative and creative financial solutions to the challenges they face as an organisation and as a system.
If you are as passionate about the NHS and if you believe you would like to work with fantastic colleagues in an ambitious organisation, with a national and international reputation, then to get more information or to apply for this exciting and challenging role please go here
