We need your help!
The Finance Technical Competencies were updated about five years ago and define all of the technical competencies required by finance staff between a Band 1 and 8d. In 2018, FFF wished to define the ‘softer’ behaviours and business skills required by finance staff and so they commissioned a Behavioural Skills Framework. We are now commissioning a piece of work to bring both frameworks together into one document. This will identify all of the skills, behaviours and attitudes required for the future success of finance staff.
We have commissioned Karen House, a competency specialist and author of the two documents to help us to update the frameworks and to bring them together. Karen is not a finance specialist and so she will need help with specifying the detail. With this in mind, and conscious of the burden of reviewing all of the material, we are asking for volunteers from different types of NHS organisation to review two competencies each – one technical and one behavioural. Altogether we will be involving 36 volunteers so that we cover everything - and this is where you come in – as we would love your input!
The 9 competency pairs are listed below, if you would be happy to review one of the pairs of competencies please let us know by replying to this email and Karen will give you a call at a convenient time for you to provide your detailed feedback.

|Management and Business Accounting||Team Working and Collaborating|
|Commissioning and Contracting||Being Accountable|

|Internal Audit||Solving Problems and Making Decisions|

The links to the two documents are shown on the right hand side of the page.
