Financial Management is at the core of the activities that deliver against the Built To Last Cornerstone. Our role is to manage and maintain Nationwide's financial strength, by ensuring we are spending our members money wisely and helping build great customer propositions to maximise income potential. A critical part of the role of Financial Management is to support the organisation to deliver efficiency savings.

We are looking to cover maternity leave on a one year fixed term contract providing financial support to complex major technology projects.

At Nationwide we openly put our 15 million members at the centre of every decision we make as a business. Every role, no matter what it's doing, is member focused.

Your success isn't based on how long you spend at your desk. You'll have contracted hours, but we're always happy to support flexible working wherever we can. That might mean working from home or different Nationwide offices or agreeing a working pattern to help you balance work and life. We will always strive to find a way that works for everyone.

If we receive a high volume of relevant applications, we may close the advert earlier than the advertised date, so please apply as soon as you can.

You will have significant experience engaging senior stakeholders and you'll thrive in a high-pressured environment driven by strict deadlines and competing demands.

Your knowledge of capital accounting will help you advise stakeholders in this area and ensure the timely and effective creation of assets as projects deliver.

Your nature will need to be one of inquisitiveness, as well as having an appetite to challenge and improve existing processes.

You will have a desire to successfully engage and influence all areas of the business in order to drive the finance agenda as well as providing strong leadership qualities.
About you

  • Experience of providing financial support in a projects environment with knowledge of capitalisation.

We're also interested in who you are as a person. Why? Because our membership is made up of so many different kinds of people, so we want our employees to be just as diverse. We'd love to hear about:
  • Your values, and what makes you who you are
  • How you'd make a difference to our members in this role

We know applying for jobs can sometimes feel like you're sending an application into a black hole. We review each application individually. So, it's a good idea to call out your most relevant experience on your application to give yourself the best chance.

Why work at Nationwide
We're a building society founded by ordinary people, our members, who came together to help each other get the most from their money, buy homes and save for their futures. For over 130 years, we've supported each other and our communities, and we've done the right thing for wider society too.

If you come to work here at Nationwide, you'll be part of that. Part of something a bit different. And something really quite special.
