Job Description

An exciting opportunity has arisen for an experienced Finance Transformation Manager to join a leading UK-based retailer. An initial 12 month FTC, but there will undoubtedly be chances to find longer term roles in the wider function, given the organisation's track record of retaining talent.

As Finance Transformation Manager, you will play a key role in shaping and delivering strategic finance change initiatives across the business. This is a varied and fast-paced role where you will work alongside the Finance Transformation team and key stakeholders to define project requirements, provide financial leadership, and ensure successful delivery.

Key responsibilities:
* Partner with Finance, Commercial and Technology teams to understand business needs and align project requirements
* Challenge current processes and systems to deliver next-generation finance capabilities
* Attend Agile ceremonies to provide finance input into system developments
* Manage and prioritise build requirements and integration with broader change roadmaps
* Drive governance, tracking risks and issues to ensure smooth delivery
* Embed the new processes through effective change management
* Cover the Head of Finance Transformation as needed

To be successful, you will be a qualified accountant with proven change delivery expertise. Excellent communication skills, commercial acumen, and an innovative mindset are essential. The ability to flex between projects and motivate cross-functional teams is key. You must have learned these skills in a large company environment, ideally within Retail/FMCG.

This is a fantastic opportunity to shape the future finance function of a leading retail brand. You will gain broad exposure across the organisation while developing your finance transformation skills.

If you are ready for a varied and strategic finance role driving large-scale change, please apply today.
