The Royal Marsden NHS Foundation Trust is a world-leading cancer centre specializing in cancer diagnosis, treatment, research and education. The Royal Marsden has been rated Outstanding again by the CQC.  Together, The Royal Marsden and the ICR are ranked in the top five cancer centres in the world for the impact of their research. The Royal Marsden operates from two centres, in Chelsea and Sutton.  Over the past year, we have maintained our strong track record of performance on all quality, financial and service standards to ensure patients receive the very best quality of care and leading‑edge treatment.  We employ over 3,900 staff in a diverse range of careers including nursing, medical, science, radiography, pharmacy, occupational therapy, finance and administrative services.

Due to a recent internal and external promotion, two Finance Business Partner opportunities have arisen. These positions report to the Head of Financial Management and each have a small team with one direct report.  These are two excellent opportunities to work with a range of clinical and corporate directorates, gaining a great understanding of the Trust as a whole and making a real impact. You will be joining a collaborative, hardworking and inclusive finance department who encourage development and high standards.

You will be acting as a business adviser, providing expert financial, commercial and strategic advice to directorates and the wider Trust.

Key responsibilities of the roles include:

  • Leading the development and production of the annual financial plan for the divisions
  • Supporting the development, implementation and ongoing monitoring of Business Cases that further the strategic objectives of the division
  • Developing financial strategies for the divisions that enable the Trust to meet its objectives
  • Assisting the divisions in the negotiation of contracts for the provision and procurement of services
  • Providing positive support as well as robust challenge when working with stakeholders

The successful candidates will be intelligent, qualified accountants who have enjoyed a progressive career and have outstanding communication skills, a passion for best practice and high caliber influencing skills.  You will be a natural leader who has a keen eye for detail, as well as managing and building relationships.  We are open to candidates from a diverse range of sector backgrounds although it is essential that all candidates embrace our organisations values.

Please contact our recruitment partner Allen Lane for an informal discussion.
