Are you a self-motivated, organised finance professional with excellent communication skills, who is passionate about improving dog welfare?

We’re looking for a Finance Business Partner to provide an excellent, proactive business partnering service to budget holders across our organisation.

Why Dogs Trust?
We love dogs. That’s why we do whatever we can to make sure every four-legged friend gets the love they deserve. We’ll never put a healthy dog down, so our work is focused on helping dogs in need, supporting owners every step of the walk, and creating a better world for dogs in the future. It’s what we’ve been doing since 1891 and how we’ve grown to become the UK’s leading dog charity, helping 12,000 loyal friends find their forever homes every year.

What does this role involve?
As Finance Business Partner, you’ll:

  • work closely with key budget holders across our organisation – supporting them by providing analysis and insight to link their business strategies with budget.
  • produce monthly management accounts, be involved in annual budgeting and forecasting processes and liaising with external auditors.
  • also ensure schedules for year-end audit, the general ledger and financial systems are maintained according to best practices.

What skills do you need?
To be successful in this role, you’ll:

  • have experience working in a similar role, with proficiency in accounting systems (preferably U4 ERPx, as that’s the system we’re using), and Office, especially Excel.
  • be self-motivated, with a flexible but methodical approach to work.
  • have excellent communication skills, with the ability to convey complex finance information clearly to non-financial staff, and the ability to cultivate strong partnerships across the organisation.
  • be happy working in a busy team environment
  • have a commitment to the aims and values of Dogs Trust

What does this team do?
The purpose of the Finance Department is to support the rest of Dogs Trust in achieving the strategic aims of the charity. We work to ensure financial (and non-financial) systems and controls function effectively and limit the exposure of the charity to related risks, provide accurate, timely financial information and of course, pay our suppliers on a timely basis.

To apply for this position please click the APPLY NOW button. Our application process requires you complete an application form and a covering letter explaining your interest and suitability for the role. Please note that we may close this vacancy early if we receive enough suitable interest, so to avoid disappointment early application is encouraged.

Dogs are incredibly diverse, much like the humans that love them! At Dogs Trust we value diversity and we're committed to fostering an inclusive culture. We actively encourage applications from people of all backgrounds, abilities, and cultures and believe that a diverse workforce helps us to achieve our mission. Our colleague networks give our people a voice acting as vehicles for real and meaningful change within Dogs Trust. We truly want to see every candidate shine throughout the entire job application process, interview stages, and during their time with us. If there's anything on your mind or any adjustments you may need, don't hesitate to reach out to us. Feel free to send us an email at [email protected]. We're here to support you every step of the way.
