We are on the search for an experienced Finance Manager to report on the trading performance of the Costa business, International subsidiaries, joint venture and Franchise business globally. All of which you’ll do on time and to the highest standards, and because you can see what your reports mean in business-terms, you’ll also highlight opportunities and risks as and when you come across them.
Costa Coffee is all about the people and the passion for coffee. We believe in great coffee for everyone… and we mean everyone! We like to keep it simple and inclusive so there’s no pretension, no elitism and very few dos and don’ts. (This means slurpers are welcome, we find dunkers divine, and a dab of froth on a customer’s nose makes our day.) Maybe it’s because we love coffee, but we really value a feeling of warmth in our teams and in our communities. We encourage trust, and empower our people to feel supported and make their own decisions. And we love a can-do attitude, boldness and the courage to create positive change.
Some companies spout this kind of froth but don’t back it up in their actions, but at Costa Coffee we’re genuine. We really mean what we say, and we’re committed to our people, our customers and our growth plans.

We want Costa to be a great place to work. We welcome people with opinions and ideas, and we value enthusiasm and a passion for great coffee. Working for Costa is about knowing what we stand for, standing out from the crowd, and not taking ourselves too seriously. Follow the beans and be part of the #CostaCoffeeAdventure
