About Us

Senior Financial Analyst

Salary in the range: £36,315 to £43,110 pro rata to 18.5 hours per week

To cover changes within our Institutional Sustainability and Governance team we have a vacancy for a part-time experienced qualified finance professional. The working hours will be 18.5 per week, and we are flexible about the pattern providing it meets operational requirements.

The post-holder will work as part of a team monitoring the financial health of further and higher education institutions. Through the analysis of information each Senior Financial Analyst provides advice and guidance on the financial health and governance within their allocated portfolio of institutions. Each Analyst has a designated lead responsibility/specialism within the team.

Skills and experience

Applicants should be a fully qualified accountant with a minimum of three years’ post qualification experience. A sound awareness of UK accounting and audit standards is necessary. Experience across the following range of skills is important to be able to meet the requirements of the role: business analysis, finance, financial and management systems, audit and risk management.

The post-holder must be an effective communicator (both written and orally) and be able to build and maintain working relationships with a range of internal and external stakeholders. This includes the ability to analyse and explain complex financial and governance issues to those from a non-financial background. A high degree of proficiency is necessary in IT packages including Excel.

Applications from candidates with a minority ethnic background are particularly welcomed, because these groups are currently under-represented at this grade within SFC.
