We’re looking for the pick of the bunch…

Starting life in 1874 at a stall in London’s Covent Garden market, Mack has a long and distinguished history. Still a privately owned, family business, Mack is one of the largest importers, packers and suppliers of fresh fruit in the UK. Supplying to a number of major supermarkets and retailers throughout the country, it’s likely you will have seen or purchased some of our products. Through our specialist companies we supply a wide range of fruit and exotic vegetables. People are at the heart of our business and we would love for you to be a part of that too.

So, why work for us?

We are looking for a Finance Business Partner to work for Mack and its’ sister companies. If you’re a qualified Accountant, you may have a pretty good idea what that involves, but what you probably won’t know is why you should work here. Our Finance Business Partners have the opportunity to work within our bustling Commercial office and play an integral part in influencing key business decisions.

Working closely with our Directors and Commercial teams, it’ll be within your remit to lend sound financial and commercial advice to ensure that we are maximising profit. Seeking out any opportunity, you’ll be responsible for acting as a ‘strategic soundboard’ in order to optimise our impact on the market. You will be responsible for building pricing models and using your business acumen to collaborate and challenge the Commercial teams to enhance profitability through new ventures and products or additional customers in new markets.

We need somebody who is great with numbers in order to analyse data, own forecasts and prepare budgets, we are also looking for someone who can drive and assess new opportunities and would be comfortable with presenting your findings to our board of directors. You will act as the finance lead on investment proposals and new ventures within your product area/trading entity and will own your profit and loss statement with the Commercial team.

As part of the Commercial Finance Team you will be working alongside other Finance Business Partners to manage and mentor a team of Commercial Finance Analysts, ensuring that you work with them to develop their skills and knowledge in order to reach their full potential.

This is a fantastic opportunity to play an integral part in our organisation and influence our key stakeholders.

• A qualified Accountant; ACA, ACCA, CIMA or equivalent
• Someone with previous experience in a commercial based environment
• Someone with excellent Excel skills
• Someone with the ability to influence, motivate and challenge the approach
• Someone with experience of using SAP (desirable)

In return we can offer you a rewarding career where every single day is different to the one before.

• A salary of £45,000 - £55,000 per annum (dependant on experience)
• 25 days holiday per annum plus 8 bank holidays
