Commercial business partnering role, offering fp&a support to General Managers within the business
Working for a growing international business services group
The company is an acquisitive international group, who have recently undergone a huge transformation programme which has resulted in the opportunity to hire a Business Finance Controller to support the general management team. The organisation has a very strong vision and the employees share critical values, around empowerment, determination and teamwork.
Reporting directly to the UK Finance Director, key responsibility will be to provide support to the Regional Directors and General Manager, by offering them transparent financial analysis of monthly performance in their region. The role will include challenging and reviewing business improvement plans, analysing variance to budgets and YOY comparisons; and commenting on weekly performance.
There will also be responsibility to prepare reports for senior management (eg. on revenue movements, risks/opportunities to forecast, business cases, scenario planning, trends & bench marking, sensitivity analysis) on an ad hoc basis.
The Business Finance Controller will be expected to participate in regional monthly meetings with GM's and senior manager to support specific initiatives and optimisation projects, so there will be some travel involved in the role (within the UK).
It is expected that the successful candidate has a strong track record in either Financial Planning and Analysis, or Commercial Finance Business Partnering - either way, past positions should have partnered with non finance colleagues, ideally in a multi-site business. We would like to see CV's from candidates who have shown clear progression in their career to date, having made well informed moves with each job change.
In person, candidates should be strong relationship builders, with a proactive, energetic approach. Candidates should be able to demonstrate where they have improved commercial processes, and introduced efficiency measures, as well as having worked in a company which has gone through a lot of change.
£45,000 - £55,000 depending on experience. In addition, a very good large company benefits package.
