Base Helensburgh with option of hybrid working (consideration given for Lochgilphead base)

We are looking for an individual who is committed to working in the NHS to support the Management Accountant to deliver an effective and efficient financial management service to budget managers of services which are delivered across our Cowal, Bute and Helensburgh localities and across Children, Families and Justice Services.

A key member of the Argyll and Bute HSCP finance team, you will provide support in all aspects of financial management including monthly report preparation, budget planning, costings and analysis working alongside the Management Accountant and the senior Finance team.

You will work closely with professionals across a range of disciplines who are committed to making a difference, learn how a complex organisation works, add value to key health services and build a range of transferable skills.

Ideally qualified to HNC level in Accountancy, or with equivalent relevant work experience, you will have good analytical and organisational skills, be proficient in the use of IT systems including MS Excel and be able to communicate effectively with other team members and budget holders.

This post is based in our Helensburgh office with the option of hybrid working. Consideration will be given to requests to be based in our Lochgilphead office.

You may occasionally be required to travel between various work locations within the Argyll and Bute Locality to meet the operational requirements of the Service.

NHS Scotland is reducing their full time working week from 37.5 to 37 hours per week from 1 April 2024 but with no change in pay.  This reduction will also be applied pro rata for part time staff.  This advert and any subsequent offer/contract of employment therefore reflects the new working hours.  However, as not all service areas will be able to adopt the 37 hour working week immediately from 1 April 2024, you may be required to work up to an additional 30 minutes per week for a temporary period for which you would be paid until the service you are working in changes rosters or working patterns to accommodate the new reduced working week.  If you have any questions or concerns please contact the Recruiting Board.
