ABOUT THE DEPARTMENT/TEAM

The Finance function is structured along functional lines with the aim of embedding the ‘three lines of defense’ model at its heart, clearly separating the financial control (first line) and risk and assurance (second line) functions, ensuring the integrity of our results and the strength of our controls. This will allow the organisation to focus more easily on business decision making, strategic planning, budgeting and forecasting on the basis of accurate monthly results.

 

WHAT YOU WILL BE DOING AND WHY

You will support the Financial Planning and Analysis Lead in providing professional guidance and support in any aspect linked with planning, forecasting and monitoring performance against targets. The post holder will deliver direct and effective support to Regional SBU/Finance Function Leads by providing assurance on the integrity of our financial management reports and confirming the accuracy of our reports on business performance.

 

WHAT IS INTERESTING ABOUT IT

The role is in charge of analysing and interpreting long and short term financial and operational plans as well as business performance against targets through management reporting, including the analysis and interpretation of financial trends, variance analysis and financial impact assessment.

This post will be part of the FP&A team that may be dispersed across the region. The roles will support an individual Regional SBU Lead/ Regional Finance Function.

 

WHAT WE ARE LOOKING FOR

To be successful, you should bring along a minimum two years of experience in operational financial management and/or management accounting. You should be able to demonstrate successful delivery of results within a complex international structure and reporting to tight deadlines. You are at least part qualified with a recognised accounting body and have experience working in virtual teams with the ability to explain complex financial data to non-finance people, using non-technical language. You should possess ERP systems experience (transaction level and reporting) and advanced excel skills including pivot tables.
