About the job

Scotland’s Citizens Advice Network is an essential community service that empowers people through our local bureaux and national services by providing free, confidential, and independent advice. We use people’s real-life experiences to influence policy and drive positive change. We are on the side of people in Scotland who need help, and we change lives for the better.

You will be required to produce the Management Accounts including the forecast for the financial year and ensure that the Directorate leadership team receives timely and accurate information to make effective decisions. You will also be responsible for managing the business planning process each year to ensure that it meets the long-term vision of the directorate and wider organisation.
