Blackpool Teaching Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust is ideally situated just a forty five minute drive from Manchester. The Trust provides services to the 440,000 residents of Blackpool, Fylde & Wyre and North Lancashire, as well as specialist tertiary care for Cardiac and Haematology patients. We employ more than 6,500 staff, have approximately 900 beds and have a planned turnover in excess of £410m for 2017/2018.


As one of the United Kingdom’s largest coastal resort, Blackpool has plenty to offer its residents – it’s not just a good place to work; it’s a great place to live. In addition to its bustling centre and historic seafront, the town is world famous for its many attractions, including the famous Blackpool Tower. Blackpool also offers a number of scenic cycling routes round our local parks and across the surrounding countryside, as well as boasting panoramic views of the coast on its picturesque Promenade. Further afield, Blackpool also benefits from less than three-hour connections via rail to Edinburgh in the north and London in the south.


Our strategic vision for 2020 is:

As a high performing Trust, operating as part of an integrated care system, we will provide high quality, safe and effective care. This will be achieved in a financially sustainable way, through our skilled and motivated workforce”.

An exciting opportunity has arisen for a highly motivated and enthusiastic Accounts Receivable Supervisor with a strong focus on debt reduction to join the Accounts Receivable team within the Finance Directorate.

The team provides an income/credit management and control service to the Trust and also provides financial debt and governance advice to all Clinical and Corporate Directorates.

The ideal candidate will be an ambitious, forward thinking and flexible individual, with minimum qualifications of GCE/GCSE in Maths and English.

Excellent spread-sheet skills and experience of financial ledgers and reporting systems are fundamental to the role. A working knowledge of current VAT regulations, particularly relating to the NHS environment, would also be an advantage.
