Lambeth College transforms lives, businesses and communities across south London and is proud to be part of the unique LSBU Group. The LSBU Family comprises South Bank Academies (South Bank Engineering UTC and University Academy of Engineering, South Bank), South Bank Colleges (Lambeth College), South Bank Enterprises and London South Bank University. These organisations work to a shared mission and values and use a shared educational framework to achieve shared outcomes. The group structure is born out of a recommitment to our original civic mission. It enables us to create strategies and pathways by which people of all characteristics and talents can be supported through the education system to achieve their full potential, and so contribute their skills, energies and commitment to wider society throughout their lives.
We are at an exciting point in our journey having recently launched a new 5 year strategy 2020-2025 and the development of a new STEAM centre at Nine Elms well underway.
We are now looking for a Finance Business Partner to join our busy finance team and help support us on the next stage of our journey. You will help shape and influence the development of our financial management reporting for key stakeholders across the College, working collaboratively across functions, leading and supporting a culture of financial performance and accountability. Reporting directly to the College Chief Finance officer, you will focus on supporting the delivery of strategic financial management information for the College leadership team, the SBC Board and external reporting agencies. This is a unique opportunity for a highly motivated professional who can comfortably work independently and as part of a bigger team. You will also benefit from working within the broader professional context of finance professional services for the LSBU group.
Here’s what we’re looking for…
Proactive and flexible, you will have a strong track record of leading on the delivery of monthly/ routine management accounts reporting, comfortable in achieving agreed goals and know how to prioritise accordingly. You will need excellent stakeholder management skills, the ability to persuade and influence senior stakeholders with diplomacy and confidence. Comfortable getting stuck in, you will have excellent organisational skills and first-rate communication skills. Qualified CCAB accountant, with relevant experience, you may have worked in Further Education previously, or a similar environment.
