What You'll Do:

Reporting into the Senior Finance Profit Protection Analyst you'll primarily be responsible for ensuring that the business is paid correctly for the services it delivers as well as:
  • Taking responsibly for the timely production and monitoring of invoices and reporting, as well as supporting general Revenue Protection (RP) initiatives around the business.
  • Be key to supporting the identification of RP issues and opportunities, highlighting them to senior management as appropriate.

  • Seek out and advocate opportunities for Profit Protection enhancements and initiatives through stakeholder feedback, data, and industry best practise
  • Ensure that analysis activity undertaken is in line with the latest GDPR legislation and the use of personal data is fully compliant


Essential skills and experience required:

Ideally you'll already have experience in an analytics/accounts style role such as Billing or Finance Analyst but don't worry if not as training is provided as long as you have:
  • Strong Microsoft Excel skills and the use of advanced formulas and pivot tables (and be able to demonstrate this via short Excel test)
  • An eye for detail, concern for accuracy and ability to work to tight deadlines
  • Professional and flexible approach to work, you'll be highly organised and can hold yourself accountable to tough deadlines from a variety of internal and external customers
  • Able to work on own initiative and solve problems to delight our clients

Desirable skills and experience required:
  • Any VBA, database or SQL experience would be useful but not essential
  • Use of SAP Business Objects would also be great
  • Naturally any experience of logistics is also a bonus!

What we can offer you:

We can offer you a competitive salary, bonus, 26 days annual leave plus bank holidays, 3% contribution into your pension, life assurance and income protection. On top of this, we offer a great range of flexible benefits that aim to provide something for everyone, so whether you want shopping vouchers, insurance or healthcare we've got you covered.
