Are you looking for a challenge? A role which will take your CV and experience to the next level?

If you see your future in a large blue chip business going forwards then this could be a great move for you, in this role you’ll not only be adding great experience to your CV but you’ll also be adding one of the most famous organisations not only in Leicester, but in the UK to your CV. It’s the sort of business which just opens up doors in the future and quite frankly, looks great on the CV.

The famous saying always goes ‘nothing worth having is ever easy’ and that is definitely true in this role. It won’t be easy, it will be tough, there will be times during budget periods where you’re pushed to your limit, or you find new limits to what you thought you had. But, it will be worth it.

The role itself blends commercial exposure with strong analytical experience too. You’ll be operating at the forefront of one of the most exciting commercial areas in the business as this area continues to be the focal point of expansion for the business. What makes the role interesting, is, not only will you get to do the analytical work you enjoy, but you’ll then be able to be the person who takes this to the business and provides strong commercial recommendations. It’s the perfect step for an Analyst looking to build more business partnering experience.

I imagine after doing this role for 12-18 months you’ll be applying (internally hopefully) to Finance Business Partner roles paying £40-45k minimum. If you take the opportunity, grasp it with both hands and add excellent value in role there’s nothing stopping you going for roles 10k higher in 18 months time. This is the type of role where you build two years experience, in 12 months.

Ideally they are looking for someone qualified, however, if you’re at the latter stages of CIMA/ACCA and feel ready, then we’d love to hear from you, in this situation full study support will be provided.

Sound like the challenge you’ve been waiting for?
