The top major tasks and activities of the role are:

  • Provide full support to the Finance lead for allocated finance areas including attendance at monthly reporting meetings
  • Actively support and continue to challenge the project team and providing change, risk and opportunity analysis
  • Preparation of Monthly, Quarterly and Annual reporting requirements, including Monthly Customer Forecast, and Provision of information to the Partners

Having already attained a Basic Security Clearance is preferable but not essential.

In return, you will have the opportunity to be part of an exciting 9 month project, working alongside a fantastic and highly reputable client within their field.
