The role will progress from working in a ‘build environment’, to supporting the running of and reporting for the new community once the proposition is live. In addition, following Nationwide for Business successfully securing £50m from the Capability and Innovation Fund, there will be additional external quarterly reporting to Banking Competition Remedies Ltd as well as a variety of reporting to support various third parties.

This diverse role will be part of a small team with a broad range of responsibilities and activities. The successful candidate will lead on many different areas due to the pace of development of both Nationwide for Business and its new Financial Management team.
