Job Description

Our client, a FTSE listed employer of choice that's continued to innovate and apply impressive strategy to stay at the very forefront of its industry, is looking to source a talented Senior Finance Business Partner with logistics/supply chain experience to lead and take ownership of the process from a finance perspective.

This is a hugely visible role in the organisation, being a key player in what drives this business from the core; essentially responsible for ensuring the profitability of the product at the beginning of its journey to the consumer.

You will be tasked with driving decision making through financial challenge and commercial analysis, ensuring the most effective use of assets to deliver functional strategy and sustainable growth. Alongside this you must build a strong business partnering culture that increases transparency and ensures best practices are maintained.

* Partnering with Global function leads and Exec Directors to deliver targets
* Identifying opportunities for stretch performance and ensuring these are delivered
* Leading financial partnering for group wide buying and production, ensuring high quality financial analysis to drive optimal buying, stock management and production efficiency
* Partnering with Production Site leadership to set and evaluate financials and performance KPIs to optimise ROI
* Partnering with buying and supply leadership to evaluate 3rd part suppliers and logistics management

The successful candidate will be ACA/ACCA/CIMA qualified with a strong academic record to date and proven track record in the FMCG/Manufacturing Finance environment. You must have a solid understanding of the production process and be well versed dealing with similar stakeholders from Operations/Supply Chain/Buying.

Due to the amount of interaction and communication with Board Level Directors, you must also demonstrate clear credibility and gravitas that enables you to influence decision making at this level. You must possess exceptional analysis and modelling skills, with the ability to articulate complex financial concepts and data to stakeholders with non-financial backgrounds.

You will be a self-starter and true leader, someone with exceptional commercial awareness and understanding of key business drivers. You must have examples to date where you have steered decision making and championed new initiatives to ensure the most effective and profitable actions are taken.

This is a truly exciting opportunity for a top calibre Senior Finance Business Partner to join a FTSE organisation that can offer consistent challenge and reward. Aside from the enjoyable, fast-paced culture, the role itself will give you valuable C-level exposure and autonomy to genuinely add value.
