The Analyst will be an effective business partner to multiple non-finance teams (marketing, product, technology) to understand the drivers of current performance and forecast future performance through regular meetings and ad hoc analysis.
Day to day responsibilities include: * Forecasting of KPI's and financial performance (P&L, balance sheet and cash flows) * Taking stakeholder input through to board presentations * Support investment appraisal process * Support pricing reviews of customers * Work with the recently merged finance team to understand performance, future forecasts and how they impact Group numbers * Support Commercial Finance Manager in ad hoc projects
The Analyst will be fully qualified (ACA/CIMA/ACCA) with 0-2 years of post-qualified experience. Industry experience is preferable however candidates straight from practice (Big 4 or Mid Tier) will also be considered providing they can demonstrate a high level of commercial dexterity. A natural interest in technology is essential along with the ability to adapt to an ever changing environment
