This is a great opportunity for a qualified accountant and commercially savvy Finance Business Partner to join this high profile company as a Regional Finance Business Partner.

At a time of significant change within the organization this high profile role provides an excellent opportunity for the Regional Finance Business Partner to engage with the senior management teams across the region to provide them with insightful financial results and analysis to ensure that the right decisions are made and the business exceeds it's performance objectives. With a budgeted revenue in excess of £100m and multiple locations we need someone with great drive and determination as well as excellent planning and stakeholder skills to fill the role...could this be you?

Your accountabilities:

As Regional Finance Business Partner you will be the 'go to' person for the area Directors and Management team. But this isn't a 'one way' remit....your task is to provide a proactive approach to ensure that you are engaging (and sometimes challenging) with the business leaders to ensure that they are fully aware of the business performance, opportunities and challenges that it faces.

While we need a 'performer' who enjoys driving the agenda, you obviously also need to be confident that you are presenting accurate and insightful financial data around results, budgets and forecasts and therefore you must also be prepared to (and enjoy) getting into the detail with an inquisitive mind and the ability to identify risks, areas of concern and variances that need explanation.

Monthly accounts, budgets, forecasts and variance analysis will be your 'bread and butter' - dealing with multiple P&L's and managing stakeholder relationships in a positive and collegiate style will certainly keep you busy and challenged!

What do you need to be successful?

As this is probably one of the best roles available to career focused Finance Business Partners, our client does of course have high expectations! So we are looking for:
  • A qualified accountant ( CIMA / ACCA / ACA) with a great academic and career track record to date
  • Proven experience as a Finance Business Partner in a medium to large organization where you have had senior stakeholder management responsibility
  • An engaging and confident personality - you need to be credible, able to think on your feet and communicate in an effective and influential style
  • You need to be pragmatic, inquisitive and able to cut through the detail to deliver results and presentations that clearly illustrate business performance, explain variances to budget and identify risks
  • Strong analytical and numeracy skills
  • A continuous improvement mentality with endless determination
  • The ability to 'talk finance' to non-finance management
  • Prior multi-site responsibility and a willingness to travel (UK)

What's in it for you?

In addition to a competitive salary and company car / allowance the company provides an excellent pension scheme and other benefits. Perhaps mot important though is the opportunity to work in an environment where you can make a genuine impact and take the next step towards a commercial / operational FD role in the future. You will be given autonomy and accountability but also provided with support and coaching to ensue you and the business gain maximum benefit from the role. To apply please forward your CV with details of your current salary, benefits and notice period.
