Not just another building society. Not just another job.
We're the fourth biggest building society in the UK and what makes us a bit different is that we're a mutual organisation. We don't have shareholders, we're owned by our members.
Our colleague say Skipton's a great place to work and you could be one of them, bringing with you new ideas on how we can keep customers at the heart of what we do.
Whatever your background, and whatever your goals, we'll help you take the next step towards a better future.
Skipton is a diverse and flexible employer, with an exciting future ahead. The Society has strong financial strength and boosts fantastic customer and colleague experience.
The Finance team are at the beginning of an exciting journey. We are currently re-shaping what our team looks like for the future, making sure we are adding the most value to the Society. As part of this, we have also started our Finance Transformation programme, which will bring new finance systems to benefit not only the function but the rest of the organisation, and we’ve re-designed ourselves to make the most of talent and skills in the team to add the most value to the Society.
We’re evolving what we do and how we do it and we’ve got an exciting new opportunity within the Financial Strategy and Business Partnering team. We’re looking for someone with vision, passion, drive and an ability to build strong relationships with key stakeholders.
As Financial Planning Leader you will lead the detailed forecasting and planning of the Society’s mortgages and savings for both the balance sheet and margin, along with reporting month-end variances to forecast. You will take an active role in spotting opportunities and threats inherent in the Society’s business plans, running alternative scenarios and proposing ways to more effectively achieve the Society’s goals.
You will be working closely with your leader, peers across the team and key Leadership Team stakeholders to help deliver long term value to the Society. You will be an integral member of the Financial Planning team, which is instrumental in facilitating and co-ordinating our Financial Planning cycles across the organisation and Mortgage and Savings Division, ensuring this is aligned with the Society’s overall balance sheet strategy and other business strategies.
Career progression is available by those driven in seeking an empowered destiny for themselves.
What you will bring
You’ll need experience in articulating financial variances, and a good understanding of the Microsoft Suite, in particular Excel. You’ll support the team in helping the Society make the best financial decisions for long-term sustainability. And you’ll be expected to work with a high degree of autonomy in meeting conflicting deadlines.
An agile and collaborative work style, supporting the wider team in delivering the best outcomes. You will have an ability to build strong and effective relationships and will demonstrate strong project leadership skills, having the courage of your convictions and being confident to stand behind your views and recommending the best course of action.
If you are up for the challenge, and you want to have a real say in how things are being done at Skipton, we want to hear from you.
We care about our colleagues. So we treat each other like the complex and diverse individuals we are.
Work here is never one-size-fits-all, it flexes around your strengths and needs,
Everyone is held accountable for achieving our common purpose. The aim is for all of us to do better work, have a better life and enjoy a better balance between the two.
