An opportunity has arisen to join the Finance team at one of the largest Acute Trusts in the country, following a recent restructure to strengthen the department.

We are seeking to appoint an experienced and enthusiastic Head of Financial Management – Income to join a busy team, with specific responsibility for patient care contract monitoring, income, and performance reporting.

With the Trust’s annual turnover of over £1 billion across seven Clinical Management Groups (CMGs), this full time permanent post offers a rare opportunity to work in a large Acute Trust’s Finance & Commissioning function, bringing varied and rewarding challenges on a daily basis.

Based at the Leicester Royal Infirmary, but with opportunities for remote working, the successful post holder will be required to deliver and analyse wide-ranging aspects of financial monitoring with a focus on Trust wide monitoring and reporting of income. This will include; income from Integrated Care Systems, contract variation income, Specialised Services income, and Health Education England income. The post holder will also have the opportunity to support the development and commissioning of new services within our CMGs.

The post offers exposure to all aspects of acute NHS healthcare, with opportunities to build relationships across the ICS and the broad perspective that this gives, whilst also being part of a large Acute Trust delivering front line patient care across all specialties. The post holder will therefore need to be adaptable and be able to work closely with colleagues in all organisations and at all levels.

Whilst a high level of experience in financial management and commissioning should be demonstrated, the post holder will also benefit from the significant level of knowledge built up within the team and the opportunity to broaden their experience in the role.

The post holder will hold a professional accountancy qualification and have direct line management responsibilities, including agreeing personal development plans, coherent objectives and regular appraisals and training.
