About Aberlour …

We are a values driven organisation delivering over 40 services across Scotland supporting children, young people and families.

We continue to grow year on year and central support functions such as our finance team, are critical in ensuring our services can provide the best care possible.

This post is initially offered as a 6-month contract to assist with our continued growth, but with the possibility of becoming permanent. The post holder can work from home but will be expected to attend team meetings in Stirling and may require some travel to services.

What we are looking for...

You will support, guide and provide financial expertise across a portfolio of services. You will prepare and monitor budgets giving guidance around budget management. You will prepare forecasts, projections and costings in conjunction with budget managers. You will conduct internal financial reviews, while working collaboratively with managers to ensure that any significant budget variances are identified.

You will have experience of working in a similar financial environment and be able to demonstrate a broad knowledge of financial systems. Advanced excel skills are essential. You will ideally be AAT qualified or have equivalent knowledge acquired through previous extensive work experience.

Here is what a current member of our finance team has to say about working for Aberlour:

In Aberlour no two days are the same – but that’s what makes it an exciting place to work. There’s genuine care and passion in the work we are doing and as a Finance Business Partner you are there to help guide and advise your colleagues on many aspects of the organisation and finance. You’re able to use your skill with numbers and systems to really make a difference in the decision making across various departments and services, which ultimately help young people & families. There is a shared sense of achievement, and when a service or project wins funding or gains accreditation/good grading, it’s a success that’s celebrated by all in the organisation.”

What we offer...

As well as a supportive team, we want all our employees to feel valued and rewarded for the vital work they do. When you work with us, we'll recognise your efforts with generous annual leave, an excellent employer pension scheme, life assurance worth 3x salary and a range of deals and discounts across various retailers.
