The Finance function has responsibility to ensure the accurate recording of all income and expenditure of the NSPCC and its associated companies; the collation and presentation of budgets/forecast; monitoring both consolidated and Divisional income and expenditure against budget/forecast, the preparation of statutory annual accounts, tax compliance and associated returns. It is also responsible for the payment of all invoices, collection of monies due, the payment of staff and the provision of advice on financial matters throughout the organisation.
In all we employ around 40 people, who work primarily out of either our London HQ, or our National Processing Unit in Cardiff.
This refers to qualities that help you communicate with and work well with others, including listening actively, understanding the needs of others, managing your emotions and interpreting non-verbal communication such as body language.
Attention to detail refers to your ability to complete tasks accurately and thoroughly for all areas involved. Being detail-oriented is an important quality as it suggests that you are attentive, efficient and productive.
Teamwork skills have to do with your ability to work with others in a team. This includes how you handle tasks such as collaboration, resolving group conflicts and sharing responsibilities. Working harmoniously in a team environment is an essential skill as almost every job involves working with other people to achieve common goals and objectives.
Problem-solving abilities allow you to identify problems and solve them efficiently and effectively. Being a good problem solver allows you to understand and analyse problems and develop creative and strategic solutions, even with limited resources available.
Working under pressure means that you can remain calm and carry out your tasks efficiently during high-pressure situations. For instance, when expectations change or things don't go according to plan. In many types of roles, you may experience demanding situations at work where you have to make quick decisions and remain focused while carrying out your tasks to a high standard.
When we strive for excellence, we maintain high standards. High standards can encourage us to think creatively, solve problems, stick to deadlines and commitments, and do quality work. People who strive for excellence want to do things well; they possess a growth mindset and are open to challenges.
