        More trust, less crime, and high standards. A New Met for London.

        Join the Metropolitan Police as Finance Business Partner. With more than 47,000 officers and staff, the Met is the UK’s largest police service. It currently has 25% of the total police budget for England and Wales. The Met polices 620 square miles and serves more than eight million people across one of the world’s most dynamic and diverse cities.

        London doesn’t stand still, and neither do we; the challenges and opportunities facing us are always changing. The capital is growing and set to be almost 10 million within a decade. Advances in technology are changing social behaviour. The demand we face is increasing and crime is rising. This, coupled with the current level of funding requires us to prioritise resources intelligently and maintain a keen focus on improving efficiency and productivity.

        The two year plan on how the Met will deliver more trust, less crime, and high standards. A New Met for London is the product of more than 10,000 interactions with Londoners, our people, and partners from across the city. It represents what they’ve told us they want us to focus on. We’ve already made considerable progress in the last nine months, but there’s much more to do.

        The Finance Business Partner (Grade M) role will support the Strategic Finance Business Partner and the Senior Finance Business Partner in ensuring that the MPS achieves value for money and maximises value from the services it delivers while meeting the needs of the Business.

        Key responsibilities of the role will include:

        • Building good relationships with the Business Groups (supporting the Senior Finance Business Partner) in order to influence and deliver value for the MPS through the implementation of the financial strategy.
        • Support the Senior Finance Business Partner with the design, build and maintenance of costing models that address structure and service issues.
        • Provide support for projects (regular and adhoc) including business and strategic planning, investment appraisals, acquisitions, disposals and contract bids.
        • Assist managers and Strategic and Corporate Finance in producing and managing the group budget and strategic plan process, including providing effective support during the budget process through analysis of divisional budget proposals and presentations to ensure that budgets and savings plans are robust.
        • Develop analytics that support the tracking of operational demand (including trend analyses) so that Business Groups can effectively introduce demand management mechanisms where applicable for the services.

        To be suitable for the role you need to be a qualified accountant (CCAB, CIMA or equivalent) with proven experience in business analytics, budgeting, financial management, management reporting, providing advice and investment appraisals are vital. You should also have experience in working in a public sector environment, undertaking procurement and contract management.

        An ideal candidate should have also worked within a complex organisation, to reflect the complexity of the MPS.

        Please note: This role will be subject to security vetting.

        The Met is committed to being an inclusive employer with a diverse and representative workforce at all levels. Applications are encouraged from people from the widest possible range of backgrounds, cultures and experiences.  Applications from ethnic minority groups and females are particularly welcome.

        The MPS won’t accept applications from anyone who is, or has been, a member of the BNP or similar organisations.

        Based out of Kilburn (main location, with an expectation to work across the Metropolitan Police estate within London), the MPS operates in the heart of London and offers fantastic transport links to areas throughout London and further beyond. As a Finance Business Partner, there is an expectation that you will be in the office 2 to 3 times per week.
