At Cycling UK, we imagine a country where everyone is able to cycle. Where the streets are free of congestion and the air is clean to breathe. 

As the UK’s cycling charity, we inspire more people to ride, making our streets safer for cyclists and opening up traffic-free routes to reach our vision of millions more people cycling across the UK. Cycling UK’s extensive experience of engaging with people from all walks of life means we recognise the barriers, challenges and perceptions that can deter people from trying cycling. We have just embarked on an innovative new programme for people who might not normally consider riding a bike, Cycling Made E-asy. 

At this time of significant growth and expansion, we are looking for an experienced finance professional for our newly created finance business partner role. 

The post holder will provide strategic direction, ensuring all financial controls, reporting, commercial and contractual requirements are implemented effectively to maximise the impact of the project. This highly visible role requires strong experience in developing professional and credible working relationships with a range of stakeholders such as project leads, managers, suppliers, staff and consortium partners.  

You must be a qualified or part-qualified (AAT or QBE) practitioner with strong analytical skills and an understanding of accounting processes, VAT, budget management, forecasting and month-end. 

You will have excellent communication, motivational, and relationship building skills with a high standard of literacy and numeracy, an excellent eye for detail, and practical experience of Microsoft applications. 

Explore the attached job description for full details on this exciting opportunity. Complete the application form expressing why you are the right candidate for this opening and send to recruitment@cyclinguk.org.

Focus on gearing your supporting statement to exemplify how your skills and experience match the requirements of the role, directly referring to both the job description and person specification. This enables the selection panel to assess your relative strengths against the specified criteria.
