These past few years have seen netball in Scotland experience a meteoric rise in profile as more people played, watched, enjoyed and invested in our beautiful sport. This success has ignited a fire of ambition and self-belief within us all of what this sport and organisation, as well as the people within it, can truly achieve. We have raised the expectations of a nation and our future has never looked brighter.

With a Finance Officer on board, the organisation is looking to strengthen the current financial resources, whilst ensuring that compliance and audit requirements are met at all times and that a continuous improvement culture is embedded. This is a key role as the business is looking to enhance cost control, internal financial reporting and insight to better support commercial decisions.
The Finance Officer will work closely with the Head of Operations and the Sirens Operations Manager to provide value-added input on finance and budget management by supporting directly; cost management, budgeting, analysis and operational excellence objectives.
