We're looking for a Finance Analyst to join our talented Finance team and act as a critical and influential member of the Finance directorate. Along with the Finance Business Partner, you'll inform much of the dialogue between Finance and Retail. With over 750 sites and some key projects being delivered in the forthcoming year this is a fantastic opportunity for someone keen to further develop their business partnering skills.

You'll be a part qualified CCAB accountant, or have equivalent relevant experience and have an understanding of technical accounting fundamentals are required, preferably with intent to attain full qualification.
With relevant experience of management accounting/reporting, forecasting, budgeting and analysis, you'll ideally have basic knowledge of Charity Finance requirements in particular with regard to restricted reserves and VAT.
Intellectually curious & challenging, you will have excellent communication skills, able to build strong working relationships with the team and wider organisation quickly, and show great initiative with the ability to develop strong working relationships with the team and key contacts throughout the organisation. A good eye for detail matched by excellent Microsoft Excel skills is required.
If you find the usual "traditional" accounting roles somewhat lacking then you'll find this business focused role, working closely with operational stakeholders of great interest.
When you work at the British Heart Foundation, you become a part of medical history.

And we're not about to stop any time soon. We are here to beat heartbreak forever. To stop heart and circulatory diseases devastating families. And if you want to help us get there sooner, you could be the Finance Analyst we need.
