The successful candidate will be ACA/ACCA/CIMA qualified with a strong academic record and experience working in a fast-paced, blue chip environment, ideally gleaned in Retail/FMCG/Multi-Site hospitality. Previous management experience would also be highly advantageous.

You will need to show strong commercial awareness, be willing and able to challenge the status quo where necessary and seek performance improvement whenever possible.
