* Undertaking ad hoc work and investigation arising from stakeholder requests.

* Supporting agreed funded and unfunded projects.

* Supporting delivery of efficiencies and culture of continuous improvement.

* Establishing and building relationships with stakeholders.

* Active participation in resource sharing.

Ideally you'll be qualified and /or studying for a professional finance qualification, and have a proven track record supporting financial reporting. You'll also need to be able to use and manipulate spreadsheets, produce formatted charts and use advanced formulae and pivot tables.

You'll need to demonstrate an understanding of financial systems and processes, as well as commercial awareness of the market and industry environment.

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

Knowledge of Investment Banking products and product control would be highly advantageous.
