In the UK, Bibby Financial Services provides funding of over £480 million each year and helps support over 7,000 businesses. It is proud to have been listed in the Sunday Times 'Top 100 Best Companies to Work For' for the last 3 years, ranking 31st in the most recent report.

- Identifying and implementing the right treasury strategy to maximise return to shareholder funds whilst providing credible funding capacity
- Leading on structuring major funding facilities to ensure funding keeps pace with business needs

The Successful Applicant
You will be a graduate calibre qualified accountant (ACA, ACCA or CIMA), or a qualified treasury professional (ACT), with a successful track record in senior treasury roles within financial services. It is expected that you will have an understanding of complex funding instruments. The role requires an individual with a genuine desire to understand the business, as funding is enmeshed with operations. Strong stakeholder management skills are a must, as is the ability to combine strategic thinking with a willingness, when needed, to be hands on.
The role would suit an individual who is currently working for a large financial services institution looking for the opportunity to move into a broad, strategically and commercially focused treasury role with a growing, entrepreneurial business.
