Finance and procurement

The finance and procurement department supports the Trust to make the best use of resources.

What does the finance and procurement team do?

The Trust has a responsibility to ensure that its finances are well run and our finance team are crucial in making sure this happens.

Our finance teams make sure that any invoices get paid and within the correct timeframes. Much wider than this, the finance teams also play a huge role in governance, accountability, annual reports and accounts that can inform any funding decisions in the future.

Procurement are responsible for working with clinicians and senior management teams around the buying of goods and services.

I have the flexibility within my role that supports a healthy work/life balance

Our promise to you

Our recruitment is person-centred. We're committed to keeping you informed at all stages and supporting you along the way.

You'll receive a first rate induction and access to a range of development programmes.

You’ll have access to our generous pension scheme, health service discounts and 27 days of annual leave plus bank holidays, which increases the longer you’re in service.

If you need a DBS check, we will pay for it, as well as your annual subscription fee for the DBS update service.

I enjoy supporting managers with budget planning, helping them understand what funds are available to purchase new equipment or recruit new staff.

Do I need a professional qualification to join the finance team?

This will depend on the role you are most interested in but there are a number of professional qualifications that can help you in developing your career in finance. We do have some entry level roles as detailed above but usually you will be working towards or have gained a qualification from one of the following professional bodies:

Certificate or diploma from the Association of Accounting Technicians (AAT)

Professional qualification from the Chartered Institute of Public Finance and Accountancy (CIPFA)

Qualifications accredited by the Association of Chartered Certified Accountants (ACCA)

Qualifications accredited by the Chartered Institute of Management Accountants (CIMA)

The more experience you gain post qualification, the more opportunities you will have to develop into more senior finance or management roles.

I like that my opinion counts. When a manager asks my advice on a particular product to purchase they listen and use my knowledge and experience for the benefit of their service.
