Interim Chief Financial Officer

Our client, based in the Highlands is seeking an Interim Chief Financial Officer for a period of 12-15 months to work closely with the SMT and stakeholders both internal and external.

The successful candidate must be able to demonstrate significant experience of working in the public sector and of leading financial transformation at a group level in large/complex organisations, as this experience will be critical to delivering success in the role. Whilst strategic in intention, this is very much a hands-on role and the main focus of the role will be to support the organisation on its journey to becoming more effective and efficient so as to give our service users the best possible experience and outcomes.

This role will ensure that management information, systems and performance metrics are all in place together with effective financial strategy, forecasting, benchmarking and KPI metrics across the organisation.  This will include driving change and transformation including leading the financial shared services agenda in partnership with colleagues, and as such the successful candidate will be able to demonstrate a record of delivery which has been achieved by working collaboratively and in partnership in a challenging budget climate. Excellent communication and influencing skills, in addition to technical expertise are central to this role.

The role is physically based in Inverness and whilst the organisation does support hybrid working, the successful candidate should be aware that they will be expected to spend a significant amount of time in the office working closely with colleagues.
