The opportunity 

Do you want to make a difference?  Not in the sense of revamping a few spreadsheets or changing month end from 5 days to 4…. A real commercial bona fide difference to how the business does stuff?  What direction they take?  What products they push?  Which markets they push?  Where they spend their money?  Where they look to cut back?

Do you want to be talking about the exciting projects they are involved in and what you did to make it all happen?

This is proper business partnering. 

  • Its not glorified management accounting.
  • It’s definitely not month end grind, tax packs and dealing with auditors.

This is sitting next to colleagues within all the other commercial and operational areas of the business and talking about whats going on.  It’s dovetailing the message from the numbers and the messages from the business to create a commentary and narrative that actually reflects what’s working and what’s not.

It suits someone CIMA studying or newly qualified who ‘gets it’.  Someone who can influence change and cut through all the noise to work out what might actually help drive growth.  What will help hold margin and what will make the profit line look sexier.

  • It needs to be someone commercially savvy who will relish in a fast paced business that is pushing for change and improvement every day.
  • Massive career scope and you’ll be stretched and challenged every week. This is a business that will love your enthusiasm and give you the support and free reign to allow you to really flex your guns and demonstrate how mega you are.
  • Loads of mentoring and guidance from some highly talented leaders (FD and the wider leadership team).

The business - growing like billy-oh.

If you are someone looking to join a cutting edge business and get amongst some likeminded superstars then this is for you.

You need:

  • All the skills to be a great finance business partner – I’m not going to list them because if you don’t know what they are then you aren’t right for the role.
  • Excel – obvs.
  • Bags of enthusiasm and natural drive – it’s a fun, laid back and relaxed modern culture and you need to be someone who loves that setting and can deliver results without needing a push and a shove.
  • A good academic record – degree or equivalent and CIMA / ACCA (studying or newly qual).

This is a business that promotes quickly and readily and backs its people.  You could be Commercial FC in 2 years.
