We are currently looking for a Senior Manager – Business Partnering, based around the Edinburgh area and required to travel regularly to Partner Practices within your defined area.
Are you a driven, people focused individual, seeking challenge and variety in your work?
Do you have a growth mindset with a desire to coach and develop business? Do you want to work for an outstanding FTSE 100 company offering a highly competitive salary and benefits package?
A Business Partner acts as the primary point of contact to SJP Partnership: those Partner and Adviser businesses that provide outstanding advice to their clients.
The work you’ll do is crucial to maintaining their effectiveness in delivering excellent client outcomes. It encompasses creating a sense of belonging and community with your aligned Partners; helping them achieve their business objectives; and ensuring they get the right specialist support at the right time.
Your work will support and maximise their business potential, objectives, and goals within SJP, in turn supporting the achievement of corporate growth objectives and improving the quality of the client experience.
Whilst having no direct line management responsibilities, you will guide and mentor Partner businesses to support new growth in line with company objectives to deliver excellent client outcomes.
We know that everyone works best in different ways, at different times and in different environments. We value all of our employees and appreciate that everyone is different, and at different stages within their career. Recognising this, we have introduced a hybrid working policy to provide greater flexibility for part-time work, job-sharing, remote working, and flexibility on hours. Our people are encouraged to work in a flexible way that suits their lifestyle, so please ask the question and start a conversation!
Research tells us that applicants (especially those from underrepresented groups) can be put off from applying for a role if they do not meet all the criteria or have been on an extended career-break. If you think you would be a good match for this role and can demonstrate some transferable experience please apply, regardless of whether you tick every box.
In addition to an attractive salary and eligibility to participate in the discretionary annual bonus opportunities, you will also receive an excellent benefit package including:
Non-Contributory Pension – 10% (increasing with length of service) with further pension matching
*Not applicable to fixed term contracts (standard uplift applies in lieu of the protection benefits)
Our culture is the glue that binds us together - It’s one of our biggest assets and one of the biggest reasons for our success. It’s underpinned by core values of doing the right thing, being the best version of ourselves and investing in long term relationships.
We want to embrace diverse backgrounds and experiences to connect with clients, solve problems and innovate. We raise our voice on the things that matter to us and drive change from the front. Contributing to our inclusive culture is vital, ensuring a space for everyone to be their authentic self, no compromises.
In all we do, we consider how our work affects the communities in which we belong. Over 96% of our group employees are involved in supporting our communities through financial education, charitable giving and volunteering. Over 80% of all our employees and Partners donate each month to our Charitable Foundation, which is now the 3rd largest corporate charity in UK.
