It’s probably the most exciting time to be joining Northgate.  Why? Because we’re currently going through the largest business change programme in our history.  As part of the programme we’re looking to bring in a Finance Systems Analyst to help support both the IT and Finance functions through the programme.

As our new Finance Systems Analyst you’ll work across four areas of our business; our systems, our processes, our data and our change programme.  You’ll play a major part in making sure that the finance procedures we have support the wider business and are adding value, taking corrective action if there’s room for improvement.  You’ll work with other areas of our business (particularly IT and BI) to ensure we have a superior reporting insight and you’ll identify areas of weakness in our financial systems and take ownership for any improvements.  You’ll also get the opportunity to work on our XLr8 programme and be a key member of the finance team, driving and embracing a culture of change.



In order for you to be successful in this role we think you’ll firstly need good experience of a large business change programme.  You’ll need to understand the challenges this brings and how to deal with them.  You WON’T need to have achieved a finance/accounting qualification (AAT, ACCA, CIMA etc), although if you had or were working towards one then this would be a massive help.  You’ll definitely need to have a good understanding of how a finance function works and the value this adds to a business.  You’ll also need to be willing to roll your sleeves up and get stuck in, a can-do attitude is a must as is the ability to build meaningful relationships across multiple functions at any time.


Northgate offer an extremely competitive basic salary for the successful applicant as well as a range of benefits including 23 days holiday (plus an extra day for your birthday), an employee share scheme and life assurance.  For a full list of company benefits please visit http://www.northgatecareers.co.uk/career-development/benefits/
