Abbott Diabetes Care designs, develops and manufactures leading-edge glucose monitoring systems and test strips for use in both home and hospital settings. Our product portfolio includes Freestyle Libre, a recently launched system that is revolutionising how people with diabetes around the world monitor their glucose levels. We are passionate about doing work that improves the quality of people’s lives.

We currently have an opportunity for a Financial Analyst to join our UK Operations Finance team, based in Oxfordshire, supporting the financial management of our European Libre Third Party Manufacturing (TPM) processes.

In this role, you will play a key part in supporting non-financial stakeholders in accounting activities, including but not limited to project costing, pricing, budgeting and forecasting, and modelling. Building relationships with these operational teams, you will work on variance analysis, improving long term planning processes and financial controls, CAPEX proposals, and cost reduction initiatives (covering manufacturing, engineering and procurement).

To be successful, you will be CIMA qualified (although consideration will be given to ACCA and Finalists), and bring a breadth of experience of cost accounting and FP&A, combined with strong analytics gained within a manufacturing environment. Working knowledge of SAP, TM1 and Oracle (Hyperion/Essbase) is preferred, with experience of AS400 ERP beneficial. We’re looking for someone who is ambitious, highly organised, and excited about joining a team at the forefront of Diabetes Care innovation. The ideal candidate will be a proactive individual who takes initiative and is able to work within a small team, but interact on a wider business scale. You will need to have excellent communication and time management skills, and be comfortable working in a fast-paced, changing environment.

As you’d expect from an innovative global healthcare company, we offer an excellent starting salary, and a competitive range of benefits including a defined contribution pension scheme, share ownership scheme, private healthcare, life assurance, and a flexible benefits scheme.
