The NHS employs over 1 million people and has a large annual budget. The NHS Finance Function must be expert in the financial planning, analysis, management and control of those funds to ensure the efficient use of public money. You could be part of a team that has a vital role to play in supporting the delivery of world class healthcare.

Requirements:

  • Have good communication and excellent Excel skills
  • Can work as a member of a team
  • Are good at planning and organising
  • Demonstrate an interest in figures and financial calculations
  • Can assimilate complex information
