The Scottish Futures Trust (SFT) was established in 2008 as an arm’s length company owned by the Scottish Government. As an infrastructure specialist, it works hand in hand with the public and private sectors to maximise the benefits coming from their infrastructure projects – whether that is how they are paid for, how they are built, how they are used or how they are maintained.
The Finance Manager will be responsible for consolidating, analysing, modelling and reporting on financial information to support PPP infrastructure programmes and the investments held by Scottish Futures Trust Investments (SFTi). This will include leading the production of the SFTi annual statutory accounts under the supervision of the Head of Finance.
The role will analyse and track investment performance for the business across its operational models through the portfolio models, including forecasting income due to SFTi and the carrying value of investments including fair value calculations and any impairments to ensure high-quality management information for the SFTi Board. The successful individual will also lead the external audit while assisting the Senior Associate Director across multiple projects.
This opportunity is best suited to a qualified accountant with public sector or infrastructure experience, with the ability to work with a range of stakeholders. Effective interpersonal skills are also an important requirement, as the role holder will be expected to build and maintain excellent working relationships with other SFT colleagues and key stakeholders.
