Cambridge University Press has a unique opportunity available for a Senior Finance Business Intelligence Analyst to join the team. The role is a full time, permanent position offering a salary of £40,000 to £50,000 per annum plus benefits. Our global not-for-profit organisation is committed to the advancement of knowledge worldwide through our exciting publishing programme. You will be joining a diverse and collaborative workforce and you will be supported in your career ambitions to achieve your potential. Help us achieve our mission, and you will have a career that is not only hugely satisfying but brings with it great benefits and a stimulating, supportive and flexible working environment. About the role As a Senior Finance Business Intelligence Analyst, you will be engaging mainly with our financial teams in Cambridge and globally, providing technical support for their statutory and management reporting, and financial planning solutions. Your main objective will be to ensure that the financial reporting and planning solutions are fit for purpose; accurate, reliable, and flexible enough to evolve in line with changes to our business structure and processes. The main BI tools we use for financial planning and reporting are SAP Business Planning and Consolidation (BPC) and SAP Business Warehouse (BW); we also present information through SAP Business Objects (BOBJ). Any experience with these tools would be particularly valuable to us. Our Business Intelligence team is part of the Technology department and handles end user support, training and technical issues, as well as development of new reports and applications. We use agile practices as far as possible, in order to deliver value to our users early and frequently, while working at a sustainable pace. What do we look for in a Senior Finance Business Intelligence Analyst? You will need to demonstrate our six behavioural values; collaborative, decisive, empowering, innovative, responsible and responsive. We are primarily looking for someone with technical BI experience and working knowledge of SAP BPC or similar tools for Enterprise Performance Management (EPM). This position could also be a unique learning opportunity for candidates with accounting or financial background, who have an active interest in systems development, data management and analytics. You need to demonstrate that you are unafraid of trying new tools, new ways of working, or new methodologies, and that you have the aptitude to learn quickly. You will be expected to share your skills and experience with the rest of the team, and in return you will be supported in your own development. Much of your workload will be user facing, and your will need to display a "can do" service attitude. We expect you to be able to organise your own work and be highly aware of how you spend your time effectively. In return you will have a lot of flexibility and trust to make your own decisions with a minimum of administrative hurdles. A main challenge will be to understand the individual needs of a user and relate this to common solutions for a wider group of users; for this you will need good listening skills and the ability to create models in order to analyse the information you discover. Collaborating with colleagues in all different parts of the organisation, you need to communicate clearly and with integrity to aid understanding at all times. We offer our Senior Finance Business Intelligence Analyst a fantastic benefits package! A great central Cambridge location, our office is only a ten minute walk from the train station and guided busway. Benefits include a staff incentive scheme, flexible working, free life assurance and a contributory pension scheme, 28 days' annual leave, subsidised restaurant and cafe, free on-site gym and sports facilities, and season ticket travel loans. Closing Date: 26th October 2017 Why not click 'apply' today?
