        This is a unique opportunity to join the Moorfields Private team as the Head of Finance for Moorfields Private Eye Centre on New Cavendish Street.

        Due to Moorfields being a world renown, market leading provider of Ophthalmic care, individuals will travel far and wide to access the state-of-the-art facilities available at Moorfields Private Eye Centre. This has made this centre a vital asset to the Moorfields Private division as well as the wider NHS Trust, which the Centre’s profits feed back into.

        The Head of Finance for the centre will report to the Clinic Manager whilst managing the Deputy Finance Manager and Finance Assistant and working closely with the Head of Finance for the Moorfields Private Division. Due to the independence of the centre from the wider trust, suitable applicants will have the ability to work autonomously and take ownership of their work, whilst also liaising and working collaboratively with the wider Moorfields Private team when needed.

        This post holder will oversee the day-to-day financial management and control of the centre, whilst acting as the key link between finance and a range of clinical and administrative stakeholders.

        Other key responsibilities include:

        • Providing financial advice and guidance to inform strategic decision making for the business and aid in the production of narrative reports.
        • Ensuring that robust processes and controls are in place to improve efficiency, manage financial risk, provide accurate and timely reporting, and that financial reporting is consistent with statutory standards.
        • To support credit control for the handling of third party payments that are collected on behalf of providers, whilst supervising the management of the financial ledger.
        • Representing the Centre as required when communicating with external organisations such as insurance companies through negotiations.
        • Influencing strategic planning and provide challenges to the entity’s management team with overall responsibility for the financial planning within the Centre.

        The appropriate candidate will be fully qualified with a CCAB body, with an extensive background within financial management and leadership with the ability to strategically plan and communicate with senior stakeholders, as well as a demonstrated experience of financial control. Experience managing the finances of a small to medium-sized business would be applicable. First rate communication and interpersonal skills are vital here due to the diverse nature of the role.  Exposure to Sage accounting would also be a benefit. Owing to the autonomous nature of the role a proactive approach to solving and anticipating problems is key along with a can-do, team orientated attitude.

        This post represents an excellent opportunity for someone to take ownership of the financial management of the Centre whilst working closely with a high performance, market-leading NHS Trust and finance team. Your work will have a direct impact on the success of a vital, Moorfields subsidiary. Someone with a strong accounting background and the desire to lead a small finance function to success will suit this role well.

        To apply, please send a CV and supporting statement to moorfields@allenlane.co.uk by Sunday 3rd of March. For more information or for an informal discussion please contact Jack Cox on 07921 336 629 or JackCox@allenlane.co.uk
