Future-Focused Finance commissioned the HFMA to produce a series of NHS finance career stories to highlight different career pathways and the attractions of working in NHS finance.
The stories promote the benefits to people considering their career options at all points in the spectrum, from students to finance directors working in other industries. They may also be of interest to NHS finance professionals considering what their next step might be.
This report summarises the HFMA’s research into the obstacles faced by aspiring finance leaders in achieving their career ambitions and the support available for aspiring and current finance leaders.
We questioned a cohort of more than 1,000 finance employees about their experiences of elements of diversity including gender, ethnicity and disability in the NHS organisations they work for. The results of this survey informed our report, “Diversity in NHS Finance Leadership: beliefs, behaviours and barriers” which can be viewed here.
