The Role:

We’re seeking a methodical yet dynamic Finance Analyst to support the financial performance of our Barnstaple Operations Site by conducting robust financial planning and reporting, and by ensuring effective financial control procedures are in place and operating efficiently. Working across our annual and monthly business cycles, you’ll contribute to all annual budgeting and monthly re-forecasting activities (including spend analysis and budget tracking), compile monthly financial results for the Operations department and conduct the relevant analysis to maintain a current and consistent view of departmental performance, in-line with Group reporting requirements. From this information, you’ll produce clear and easy-to-understand reports (including first class analysis, bridges and commentary) which you’ll communicate to your key stakeholders through written and presentation formats for set deadlines. Working in a Business Partner model, you’ll deliver an excellent and responsive customer service to your client group at all times – additional tasks may include requests for ad hoc information or support with budgeting, forecasting, reporting or control activities.

As a person, you’re well organised with the ability to plan and manage your own workload, including prioritising multiple tasks to meet set deadlines. You’re used to working in a busy and changeable work environment, and able to maintain a good attention to detail at all times, even under pressure. With excellent communication and interpersonal skills, you’re a good team player, happy liaising at all levels of authority and able to navigate cultural differences with ease. You possess good IT skills, including experience across the Microsoft Office suite and use of a range of company systems.
