Finance is key to that success by securing and building the financial strength and performance of the Bank.

Are you an experienced Finance professional looking for the next challenge?

If so, we currently have a great opportunity for an Assistant Finance Manager to join our Retail Consolidated Financial Reporting team, based in Halifax.

The Retail Consolidated Financial Reporting team producing accurate, timely and informative month-end analysis, supporting the Head of Finance and Retail Senior Leadership Team. Colleagues in the team benefit from a particularly wide-ranging view of the Retail business, which provides an excellent opportunity to increase your breadth of knowledge across these product areas

As this is a month end reporting role, some flexibility in working patterns is required, to meet the needs of the business.

In this role, your responsibilities will include:

  • Supporting the timely and accurate preparation of primary financial statements (Profit and Loss Account and Balance Sheet) for the Retail Division, to be used throughout the monthly reporting cycle.
  • Consolidation of weekly / monthly KPI metrics for the Retail business, with analytical review and challenge, along with providing insightful commentary.

  • Continually review and challenge existing process', drive forward change, and support simplification initiatives with a pragmatic approach to problem solving

Ideally you'll be studying for a professional finance qualification, or have the desire to do so, although this is not essential.

Preferably you will have a proven track record of supporting financial reporting, and need to be able to use and manipulate spreadsheets, produce formatted charts and use advanced formulae and pivot tables.

Other essential skills and proven experience you will need to have:

  • Analytical review and variance analysis of financial information.
  • Data interrogation from general ledgers and other financial systems.
  • Advanced Excel and SAP skills.

A strong customer focus, and strong communication and presentation skills are also essential.
