Excellent opportunity for an Interim Project Finance Manager to join a large organisation during a period of change and future proofing. The successful candidate will take the Finance Lead forming part of an impressive project team tasked with predicting the business requirements over the next 10 years across the logistics function.

* Provide financial insight within the project, actively communicating any issues or updates to the project leads and the finance team
* Build relationships with external consultants and multiple internal partners to make sure that the cross functional impacts of proposals are well understood
* Support the development of documentation to articulate options and recommendations to the business
Ideally you will be ACA Qualified with exposure to Mergers & Acquisitions, Transnational Services as well as liaising with and presenting to senior stakeholders.
