Are you interested in a finance career within the NHS?  Do you enjoy working with a variety of people in a challenging but supportive environment to achieve a common goal? Can you meet strict deadlines to ensure funding gets where it is needed, whilst also dealing with adhoc queries and project work?

If the answer to these is yes, then an exciting opportunity has arisen in the Finance and Business Intelligence Directorate at Dorset Clinical Commissioning Group.  Due to the promotion of the existing post holder we are looking to recruit an experienced Management Accountant to join our team.

Supporting the Primary and Community Care Directorate the successful candidate will be highly numerate, with clear verbal and written communication skills and able to prioritisie their workload effectively.  Working on their own initiative and as part of a team, candidates must possess excellent IT skills, especially of Microsoft Excel. They will have the ability to work to strict deadlines, providing clear and concise financial advice and information to both finance and non-finance colleagues.

The ideal candidate will have significant management accounting experience and preferably be as a minimum a part–qualified CCAB/CIMA accountant, with a commitment to continue studying for a CCAB qualification.

Working as part of a small team within the wider Finance and Business Intelligence Directorate you will be based in Dorchester, with some expectation of travel around the county.

This is an excellent opportunity for someone looking to develop their financial management skills, with the role contributing to budget setting, forecasting, QIPP and Business Case proposals.

Study support will be considered for candidates looking to continue with their CCAB professional development.


Our Mission

Using our clinical understanding, we strive to lead continuous improvements to health and care services in Dorset. Our key mission is to support people in Dorset to lead healthier lives, for longer.

This mission sets out our ultimate purpose. It defines what we must aim to achieve every day, through every decision and every interaction we have as an organisation. It also incorporates our vision statement. Our mission statement is explained as follows:

  • 'Supporting people' reflects our role of commissioning services for those who fall ill and in preventing illness in the first place. It also recognises the need for us to support people to manage their own health and to work with them to do this successfully.
  • We have a duty of care for all people while they are 'in Dorset' - not just Dorset residents.
  • 'Healthier lives' is the ultimate outcome we are aiming for. It reflects a need to prevent illness (e.g. through education), as well as recognising the need to provide timely services for everyone.

As a clinical commissioning group we have a responsibility as leaders within the health economy. Our unique position as clinicians also allows us to view things differently.

We already have an excellent health service in Dorset but, excellent services can still, and must, be improved to reflect a continually changing economy and society. By using our clinical understanding and different perspective we can drive continuous improvements, not just in health care but across all services within Dorset.
