Job Title: Finance & Strategy Manager

Location: Home based with occasional travel to North Yorkshire Head office.

This is a great opportunity to join a team that influences this Financial Service organisation’s key commercial and strategic decisions. As our new interim Finance and Strategy Manager you’ll support the development of our long-term financial strategy, embedding our balance sheet strategy and developing key insight into the drivers of profitability in the business.
We’ve adapted really well to home working during the current pandemic, and we certainly want to offer flexibility with this going forward. We’re happy to discuss flexible working options with you to strike the right balance, so although our Head Office is based in North Yorkshire there would not be a requirement for you to be based here full time.
What you’ll be doing
Safeguarding the future sustainability of our business is a delicate balancing act, which you’ll actively support through detailed analysis and insight of the Society’s risk versus reward position. Through the provision of sound analysis, you will support your leader in articulating the strengths and challenges in our existing balance sheet structure, carrying out scenario modelling and sensitivity analysis to identify and propose tangible actions for future balance sheet and capital optimisation.
What you’ll bring
The successful candidate for this position will have extensive experience of ideally working within financial services and a good understanding of key balance sheet areas, specifically mortgages, retail savings, wholesale funding and liquidity.
Analytical and people skills are equally important to this role. We’re looking for someone with commercial acumen and a curiosity to challenge and ask questions that bring meaning to your outputs and analysis. You will be comfortable taking individual initiative and working in a non-structured environment not driven by process. An ability to forge strong working relationships is essential, built on the companies values of Trust, Ownership and One Team.
Home based but we will consider candidates from most areas of the country with an ideal location on West or North Yorkshire but will include: Leeds, Bradford, Sheffield, Birmingham, Nottingham, Manchester, Liverpool, London, Bristol, Leicester, Newcastle, Wakefield, York, Harrogate, Preston.
