Finance Business Partner (Charging) is required for a 23 month fixed term contract paying up to £70,495.76 per annum with British Transport Police (BTP) based in London Bridge, London.

The BTPA is responsible for ensuring an efficient and effective police force for the railways. It was established by the Railways and Transport Safety Act 2003, which sets out a number of responsibilities for the Authority including the defrayal of costs associated with the operation of the British Transport Police (BTP). The BTPA enters into agreements with train and freight operating companies in order to provide a policing service to their railway or railway property. These agreements, referred to as Police Service Agreements (PSAs), also require the companies to make payments for the service. The majority of these payments are calculated using the CAM (Cost Allocation Model).


As Finance Business Partner (Charging), you will be the owner of the current British Transport Police Authority (BTPA) Cost Allocation Model (CAM) and be responsible for its operation and analysis. Key to this role is that the successful candidate will also lead on the Authority’s commitment to review the model, engaging with all stakeholders to identify and assess potential new ways of charging for policing services.


As Finance Business Partner (Charging), you will be required to deliver against the following key areas:

  • Effective operation of the existing BTPA cost allocation model, which is defined as a business-critical model used to apportion BTP’s costs to train operating companies, and Network Rail for the costs of policing the UK rail network
  • Lead and deliver the scoping phase of the BTPA review of the cost allocation model
  • Lead and deliver a redesign of the current cost allocation model process, following an audit conducted by GIAA (Government Internal Audit Agency)
