Operations focuses strongly on providing both support and appropriate challenge to the wider organisation to help ensure that the GFSC utilises its available resources in the most effective, efficient and economical way.


The Finance team is responsible for financial reporting, accounting and audit, treasury management, funding and invoicing, and financial internal control. The team will also ensure that they are available to liaise with internal and external stakeholders to investigate and resolve any queries.

Finance also takes responsibility for completing and managing work streams which may include cross-GFSC collaboration and liaison with external stakeholders. These work streams include data analysis, annual budgeting and reforecasting , and preparation of the financial statements.

The Financial Controller reports to the Audit Committee on a quarterly basis to discuss matters relevant to the team and the GFSC. This includes an assessment of the GFSC’s financial position against the budget, the appointment of auditors each year, financial reporting, funding, and any audit findings and related action points.
