This is a great opportunity to join a team that influences Skipton’s key commercial and strategic decisions. As our new Finance and Strategy Business Partner 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.  It is a role that’s bursting with potential for a candidate who’s highly motivated, loves to learn and is keen to progress their career.

Main responsibilitiesSafeguarding 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 and make recommendations for the future. You’ll be looking at shifting internal and external influences and using your findings to create debate that ultimately influences the decisions made by the executive team.

Although there are some traditional accounting elements to the role, given the strategic nature, there is also a lot of flexibility to learn, develop, grow and carve your own path in this area.

You will be supported by your leader and the wider business partnering department. A structured scheme is also in place to help with personal development and progression, ideal for individuals with a desire to make a difference and driven to take ownership.  The potential to study for a professional qualification in the future is also available.
Ideal candidateAnalytical 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 Society’s values of Trust, Ownership and One Team.   
About the companyWhen you become a Skipton colleague you join a high performing and supportive organisation that encourages colleagues to be curious and challenge the mainstream. We’re on the Sunday Times Top 100 Companies to Work for list and proud to be the only UK building society to be awarded platinum accreditation from Investors in People.

We’re committed to creating a diverse and inclusive workplace where every colleague has an opportunity to fulfil their career potential. This includes consideration for anyone seeking a more flexible work-life balance, so if you have a need for flexibility, please discuss it with your hiring manager.
