You will help deliver the budget-setting and reforecasting processes and provide financial expertise and support to budget-holders across the charity, explaining financial issues to non-financial managers. The role will provide analytical skills to review business cases and to support other projects and support the production of the statutory accounts and the related external audit. You will also work with the Head of Finance to help co-ordinate the charity’s risk management processes.
