​Position Description:

  • This role will hold responsibility for managing and enacting finance administration within the Intellectual Property Department.

  • This will include reporting spend and calculating future spend projections, raising and seeking approval for ad hoc spend requests, as well as the day-to-day administration of various tracking tools.

  • Additionally, the role is expected to support in finding efficiencies and improvements across the department's finances to reduce our overall department spend.

Skills Required:

  • Intermediate/advanced excel skills

  • Purchase ledger experience

  • Excellent communication skills, both written and verbal

Experience Required:

  • Solid understanding of finance administration

  • Purchase ledger experience

  • Demonstrable communication skills

  • Strong organisational skills

  • Proficient in Excel

  • Excellent analytical skills

  • Ability to present and explain clear and concise information to a variety of stakeholders

Experience Preferred:

  • Basic finance qualifications e.g. AAT

  • Experience of using SAP and ITESoft

Additional Information:

  • Note that this is not a traditional 'finance' role.

  • We manage our finances internally to the department using local tools, but the successful candidate would still need to interact with the different teams across the business that make up the end-to-end finance process (eg Finance, Procurement, Accounts Payable, etc).

  • Extensive finance experience is not essential, and this role would not suit someone looking for an end-to-end finance role.
