  • Salary: Circa £35,309
  • Contract Type: Permanent
  • Ref: R00AOR01066
  • Closing Date: 04 February 2022

This is a varied role working at the heart of Nationwide’s Finance function. You will be working on the regulatory reporting and implementation of models covering Treasury Risks and Financial Reporting as well as ensuring the systems they are built on remain fit for the future.  You will build systems and reporting tools that are key to taking business decisions within the community as well as support on activities like migration of software and data governance. It’s also a fantastic opportunity to gain an in-depth knowledge of both technology and risk management.


What you’ll be doing

You’ll help, develop and improve the way we report across Finance, building confidence in the reported results. You will act as a technical lead on projects, develop functionality and drive efficiency and resilience to ensure Nationwide keeps pace with a constantly changing business landscape.

You’ll work closely with the teams in Treasury and Finance to support the growth and development of our business. You’ll also be working on projects and BAU which are managed in an Agile methodology as we adapt our ways of working to deliver successful change.

This role is a great way to gain exposure to Nationwide. In short, this position places you at the centre of the key drivers of our business, giving visibility of both the customer and funding elements of our business, as well as exposing you to diverse teams across both Treasury and Finance.

At Nationwide we openly put our 15 million members at the centre of every decision we make as a business. Every role, no matter what it’s doing, is member focused.

Your success isn’t based on how long you spend at your desk. You’ll have contracted hours, but we’re always happy to support flexible working wherever we can. That might mean working from home or different Nationwide offices or agreeing a working pattern to help you balance work and life. We will always strive to find a way that works for everyone.

If we receive a high volume of relevant applications, we may close the advert earlier than the advertised date, so please apply as soon as you can.
