As Treasury Funding Accountant you will work with the Treasury Funding Manager to approve and provide internal development loans to fund significant amounts of the Trust's commercial development. This is an exciting new initiative to fund a backlog of investment required in the Trust's infrastructure and Let Estate as well as prompting further commercial development.

What it's like to work here

We’re bigger than you think, we’re more complicated than we appear and we’re larger scale than you’d imagine. We’ve got passionate people in all our teams, and we’ve got so much more we want to achieve. We’re for ever, for everyone and we really mean that. We don’t want to stop at 5.5 million members and we want everyone to feel welcome and enjoy access to our places, so we need to reach new audiences in ways that are meaningful and relevant to them without losing the hearts and minds of those that are already with us.

What you'll be doing

Liaising with senior management throughout the Trust's wider Finance and Operational community, you will review commercial projects with potentially high returns that currently have no finance available. You will robustly challenge and review the commercial cases proposed by senior management. You will also provide an on-going review of existing projects and loans thereby ensuring development loans are provided within a rigorous commercial framework and deliver real value to the Trust.

You will also support the wider Treasury activities by providing cover for the Treasury and Investments Accountant and developing improvement initiatives in the cash flow forecasting and working capital management for the whole Trust and its related activities. This is a growing and evolving team looking to make a positive impact in a number of areas.
