Finance Project Officer

Finance Division, 23-38 Hythe Bridge Street, Oxford

We are looking for a finance project officer to work with our Digital Transformation Programme to reshape our financial management processes to be fit for our digital future.

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

The University is embarking on a major change to the Governance of its digital services through its Digital Transformation Programme. Central to this is the shift to governance of digital services. The new Committee structure will oversee all centrally delivered digital services (in the first instance) bringing together the costs and consideration of priorities for those services for the first time. Reporting to the Director of Financial Planning and Analysis, an initial piece of work will be to create appropriate mechanisms for recognising costs associated with digital services from the existing budget streams and to enable effective financial reporting and budgetary management. The role is a key point of collaboration between IT Services, finance, and senior stakeholders.

The postholder will join a friendly and agile central FP&A team, working alongside finance colleagues in IT Services. In addition to proven financial management experience, the post-holder will need to demonstrate a clear commitment to customer service, have a flexible, ‘can-do' attitude and be able to understand quickly local needs and collaborate with the wider team to produce pragmatic solutions.

We welcome applications from all sections of the community. We aspire to build a truly diverse community which values and respects every individual's unique contribution.

You will be based in the Finance Division at Hythe Bridge Street but you may be able to agree a pattern of regular remote working with your line manager.

About You

Are you a qualified accountant with excellent communication and technical skills? Do you enjoy working in a large and complex organisation, where you can make a difference and add value? Do you enjoy communicating with both finance and non-finance professions? If so, you might be the perfect candidate for our finance team!

We are looking for a finance professional who can:

• Establish and maintain effective relationships with a wide range of stakeholders, from senior management to administrators, and communicate finance matters clearly and persuasively.

• Demonstrate expertise in budgeting and planning, and ensure that timetables and deadlines are met.

• Work collaboratively with other team members and contribute to problem- solving and solution generation.

• High levels of personal affectiveness and the ability to adapt to changing circumstances with a flexible and positive attitude.

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 Tuesday 16 April 2024.

We will be conducting interviews throughout this process and hold the right to close applications early should we find a suitable candidate.
