Sellick Partnership has been engaged to recruit a permanent Senior FP&A Analyst for a leading, reputable and instantly recognisable retail business in Manchester city centre.
You will be a strong and very visible member of the team with the remit of supporting the Group Finance Team and Executive Committee members with high quality analysis of business performance. You will also support the annual budgeting cycle, monthly reforecasts, capex planning, cashflow management and 5 year planning processes through well planned coordination with finance teams across Europe.
As a senior member of the FP&A team you will be responsible for the analysis, reporting and advising on all matters of potentially significant financial impact to the company and shareholder.
This is a complex, hands on role, supporting the senior management of the Group and the shareholders. Key to the success of the role is the ability to manage and be accountable to multiple stakeholders. You will have great exposure to the business, working closely with the non finance teams, aiding them in making sound conclusions following your analysis.
This key position within both the Group and the wider finance community combines a thorough knowledge of accounting and finance issues with sound commercial acumen. You will exert influence and support decision making through the analysis of complex accountancy/finance issues. You will work within a demanding environment and must have the ability to satisfy the requirements of multiple internal and external stakeholders.
The successful applicant will be a fully qualified ACA or ACCA or CIMA either making their second move from practice or currently in a similar role within FP&A/Commercial Analyst. You will have previous experience in an FMCG or multi-site leisure or retail environment; have a creative and innovative approach to problem solving and analysis; delivery orientated - able to work in pressurised environments, meet multiple deadlines and manage own priorities.
You will also be able to demonstrate business acumen and ability to gain knowledge across the breadth of a variety of functions. Good communication skills with proven experience of working alongside and presenting to the senior management team and external stakeholders. You be able to translate financial information (exceptional spreadsheet skills is a must) and create successful business relationships. You will also be able to take a 'big picture' view with demonstrable internal consultancy and influencing skills, while possessing a keen eye for the detail.
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 finance post then we would be pleased to hear from you.
