Finance Analytics Manager
An exciting opportunity has arisen for a top quality commercial finance person to assume a high profile, newly-created role within a divisional finance team of a high street retailer. This is a great opportunity for a qualified finance analyst to gain an in depth understanding of the workings of a leading retailer, whilst building on key finance skills and competencies, and supporting the finance group deliver under its priorities of control, efficiency and insight.
While the role requires a finance background the focus is to utilise technology solutions such as advanced excel models, data visualisation tools such as Spotfire and other applications to enhance the control environment, drive efficiency into our processes and most importantly deliver insight which will drive improved business performance at store level. Business partnering of both finance and non-finance stakeholders across the office and the field teams will be required to understand the challenges and deliver fit for purpose solutions.
This role reports to a truly inspirational Head of Finance who knows the workings of the business inside out. For him to be impressed, candidates must have flawless academics, a finance qualification and demonstrable analytics experience (including the use of technology to drive efficiency). Retail experience will be looked upon favourably but is a "nice to have" as opposed to a requirement. For the right individual, this role could open multiple doors in one of the UK’s best respected retailers. It’s an urgent hire so candidates should apply immediately for consideration.
