Divisional Finance Manager UAS & GLAM

This vacancy is for internal applicants only. This is a fixed term maternity cover role and may be considered as a secondment opportunity.

We are seeking a highly skilled finance professional to join the UAS & GLAM Divisional Finance Team, which provides financial support to a range of key departments at the heart of the University, ranging from Professional Services (Estates, IT, Finance, HR etc.) to some of the University's most prestigious cultural institutions, including the Bodleian Libraries, the Botanical Gardens, and the Ashmolean Museum. This is an exciting opportunity to join a small and professional team, which contributes in a vital way to the work of Oxford's central services, and the management of cultural resources of international importance.

The University of Oxford is a stimulating work environment, which enjoys an international reputation as a world-class centre of excellence. Our research plays a key role in tackling many global challenges, from reducing our carbon emissions to developing vaccines during a pandemic.

The Finance Division supports the academic, research and administrative community at the University providing sound financial advice and timely information with a range of support services including financial operations, financial reporting, financial support and professional services.

What We Offer

As an employer, we genuinely care about our employees' wellbeing and this is reflected in the range of benefits that we offer including:

• An excellent contributory pension scheme

• 38 days annual leave

• A comprehensive range of childcare services

• Family leave schemes

• Cycle loan scheme

• Discounted bus travel and Season Ticket travel loans

• Membership to a variety of social and sports clubs

• A welcoming and diverse community

About the Role

Working as a trusted finance business partner, you will be responsible for all budgeting, forecasting, planning and ongoing analysis of a defined area of the Division's portfolio of departments, and act as a key point of reference for their operational teams.

You will also provide direct financial support to some departments, as directed by the Divisional Financial Controller; this will include the production and analysis of month-end management accounts, reporting to senior manager on financial results, undertaking key financial reconciliations, and oversight of transactions processing in these departments.

We welcome applications from all sections of the community.

You will be based in central Oxford but you may be able to agree a pattern of regular remote working with your line manager.

About You

The post would suit a candidate who is at an advanced stage of acquiring a professional accountancy qualification, and has demonstrable experience of working in a similar role in a large, complex organisation. You will possess strong financial acumen with the ability to deal sensitively with key issues and gain the confidence of staff at all levels. You will have strong verbal and written communication skills, be able to interact effectively with finance and non-finance staff, and have an ability to operate confidently in an intellectually demanding and complex environment.

You will be based in Central Oxford with the opportunity to negotiate remote working with your line manager.

Application Process

You will be required to upload a supporting statement, CV and the details of two referees as part of your online application.

The closing date for applications is 12 noon on Wednesday 10 July 2024.

Committed to equality and valuing diversity
