Our Role

SSE Enterprise Telecoms operate a 13,700km private telecoms network and 15 data centres that span the UK providing a competitive range of leading edge Carrier Ethernet, Internet, Optical Networking and Co-location services. With extensive telecoms and mechanical & electrical engineering experience we can offer commercial security with unrivalled in-house engineering resource.

As a Finance Support Business Partner, you will drive business performance, identify and implement efficiency initiatives and opportunities. You will support strategic business planning and the production of accurate, reliable and realistic budgets, forecasts, financial statements and management reporting, as well as reviewing risks and opportunities and working closely with the Finance Operations team and the Commercial team.

This will be achieved by providing analysis and insight as well as timely and effective support and proactive challenge, communicating succinctly and clearly to non-finance colleagues at a senior level to aid decision making, as well as by building relationships and influencing, all of which will put you at the heart of the business with the focus very much on the future & creating value.

Your Skills and Experience

To be successful in this role, you should be a fully or part qualified accountant with relevant experience in a Business Partner/Finance Manager/Management Accountant role gained in an equivalent large and complex organisation.
