Graduate Finance Analyst - Immediate Start (3-6 Month FTC)
WHO ARE WE
Whatever your style, a career at Arcadia looks great on you. We’re the UK’s largest privately owned fashion retailer with eight major brands: Burton, Dorothy Perkins, Evans, Miss Selfridge, Topshop, Topman, Wallis, and Outfit. All our brands share the Arcadia values that make them great places to work. We let people be themselves. We're informal while professional. And we mix fun with business. But our brands all have their own distinct flavours, too. Round here, commercial success starts with people – getting stuck in and working together.
An exciting opportunity has arisen for an immediate start Finance Analyst to gain experience in the fast paced world of fashion retail. We’re looking for high-calibre graduates who have already graduated - with a 2:2 degree and above in any subject. Should you impress us you will then have the opportunity to be considered for our Finance graduate scheme, we’ll support you through your CIMA or ACCA qualification, with sponsorship for tuition fees, study leave and an experienced mentor.
MAKE STYLE COUNT
This is Arcadia Finance, where accountants get closer to the business. As part of the Finance team you’ll get to know our products and the trends that affect their sales. Because Finance, really, are the gatekeepers of the business. Every big decision goes through them. And because you’re assessing the risks and opportunities for every department, you really get to feel the impact you have on the company.
In practical terms, you’ll get hands-on with the other functions while on your programme, rotating between areas such as International, Property, Brand Finance and Logistics: you tell us, what does it cost to ship a container of products from China? Day to day, you’ll plan, report, and forecast sales. Plus you’ll come up with new ideas for processes and reporting. You’ll give commercial advice to other departments. And you’ll adapt internationally, getting to grips with how regional attitudes shape our performance.
Why are we selling more this Easter than we did last year? You’ll get a buzz out of finding the answers, because you get a kick out of making money. You’re all over the data: the Picasso of Excel. And whatever’s happening next year, it’s already on your radar. Because you know that numbers are more than just numbers: they decide our future.
