Transport for London

North Greenwich, London

c. £75,000

24 month fixed term contract starting January 2018

Help generate profits for a huge business

London is a world-class city that’s home to 8.6 million people and visited every year by 19 million more. Keeping it working, moving and growing is a huge challenge, but one that TfL rises to every day. A business with annual sales revenues of £2 billion, the development of a proactive commercial partnering cash function that will generate profit for TfL in years to come is high on our list of priorities. Join us and, using your experience of dealing with high volumes of small transactions, you’ll help us improve the service our Financial Services Centre (FSC) provides to the business and its customers.

Tackle some big cash challenges along the way

The FSC is responsible for developing and delivering a wide range of high quality back office finance and administration services. Your challenge will be to ensure that the monitoring policies, systems, procedures and control frameworks set by TfL are in place and effective to safeguard the funds and income/recoverable costs of the company. But that’s not all. We’ll also rely on you to manage the business planning, budgeting and forecasting cycle for the centre and develop an overall process to manage its performance.

Showcase your skills and expertise

For a smart, proactive and commercially switched on qualified accountant, this role is a potential showcase for the senior leadership of the business and offers an accelerated course in management you’re unlikely to find elsewhere. A genuinely exciting opportunity with huge scope, it could well lead to line management roles elsewhere in TfL. It may even see you make the transition from audit and accounting to an operational role or one within our large corporate treasury function. 

Make the most of your experience to date

To succeed, you’ll need to have delivered change in a cash-restricted environment or a large scale operation that’s given you the vision to recognise the potential benefits that changes to cash management tools and processes could bring. Keen to accelerate your commercial and line management skills and put yourself in the shop window for broader interaction at senior level, you’re used to managing and coaching a team and great at building relationships with everyone you deal with.

The rewards are as impressive as your achievements

In return for your expertise, along with the knowledge that you’ll be playing a vital role, we can offer an excellent benefits package including final salary pension scheme and a generous holiday entitlement of 30 days’ annual leave plus bank holidays. You can make significant savings on travel thanks to a free Oyster Card travel pass; 75% discount on national rail season ticket and interest free loan; and discounted travel on the Eurostar. You can also choose to take advantage of a discounted private healthcare scheme, tax-efficient childcare payments, and a host of retail, health, leisure and travel offers.
