About the Role
A secondment (or fixed term contract) opportunity for 6 months has become available for a full time Business Support Co-ordinator working in the Mental Health Resource Team. This team, which is part of Surrey Adult Social Care, delivers business support to the countywide Mental Health Service. This service, in partnership with Surrey & Borders Partnership NHS Foundation Trust provides health and social care to vulnerable adults with mental health related illness.
This opportunity has become available as the permanent post holder has recently accepted a six month secondment contract in another position.
An essential requirement of the Business Support Co-ordinator is experience of financial and numerical work in addition to general office experience, understanding and experience of budgeting, commitment accounting, financial analysis and forecasting and awareness of basic accounting principles. Knowledge and experience in using Excel spreadsheets is essential as these are frequently used in the team. Attention to detail and accuracy are also essential to this role.
The role will include:
Contribution to the operation and development of efficient and effective financial and business management systems and processes in accordance with corporate and service policies and procedures.
- Entering services and costs information into the relevant IT system.

- General business support and admin duties for the Mental Health Resource Team in addition to the countywide Operational Teams, providing accurate information and high standards of customer care.
- Ensure appropriate confidentiality, through the use of office technology and systems, thus ensuring teams operate efficiently and effectively.
Although the main focus of this particular role is to assist in financial recording and reporting, the team as whole provides a range of support functions to the front line operational teams in the Mental Health Service in addition to the preparation of financial reports for senior management.
The post requires commitment to improving practice standards and personal competencies through continuous professional development. Successful applicants will be required to work efficiently and effectively to contribute to a high standard of service and must be willing to work flexibly as part of a team. The post holder may also occasionally be required to travel to other locations throughout the county.
