Sellick Partnership has been assigned to recruit a permanent Finance Manager for the distribution centre in St Helens of a very successful and instantly recognisable business. The business has outperformed their competitors over the past few years and will continue to do so by driving their strategic plan, delivering further improvements and changes that will make a real impact on the whole business.
Working in a state-of-the-art distribution centre, the depot finance team has a key role in driving vital change. We are now looking to recruit a talented Finance Manager to work closely with operational leaders to drive the commercial performance of the depot.
This is a key position where you have the chance to make a serious impact, and build a career with a business that puts people at the heart of its strategy. You will be involved in analysing financial/commercial data to identify key insights, and use data to influence decision making and drive continuous improvement coupled with challenging operational teams on budgets, commercials and KPIs, acting as a catalyst for change across the depot.
You will face some challenging conversations and therefore will need to be able to influence people in different ways. But if you can build great relationships, and educate the logistics teams on strong financial management, you'll have an opportunity to drive some really exciting change.
You will be responsible for producing management accounts, take control of budgets, planning and forecasting as well as monitoring and reporting on costs. You will be tasked to provide appropriate challenge and influence to stakeholders to ensure they make well informed decisions that accurately capture risks and opportunities.
The successful applicant will be a qualified Accountant (ACA or ACCA or CIMA) who is coming from a similar broad commercial role within depot / distribution / logistics.
You will have strong analytical skills, with the ability to interrogate data and use insights to drive decision making. You will certainly need to have a passion for driving change and continuous cost improvements.
The role requires an ambitious and proactive individual who enjoys applying a strong commercial focus, with the ability to build robust and productive relationships, providing support and challenge across all functions and liaising and influencing senior management.
Ideally, you will have experience from a similar distribution or depot role and business and have the ability to juggle multiple conflicting priorities, working to tight deadlines. More importantly, you will have the ability to build successful relationships with partners across the business.
If you consider yourself to be a committed, career driven professional who can demonstrate the above experience and who would welcome the stimulus of this commercial finance post then we would be pleased to hear from you.
If you would like to apply for this role or would like to find out more, please apply online or contact Jonathan Moss at Sellick Partnership on 0161 834 1642.
