Finance Business Partner – Reading

We’re currently transforming our Finance function.  Transforming the way in which we do everything across the whole function.  It’s such an interesting time and challenging time for the Finance team and we’re recruiting a number of Finance Business Partners to help drive the change we’re going through

This particular Finance Business Partner role is there to partner with our Fleet department, and you’ll provide analytical and commercial support to the Fleet Director and their senior management team.  You’ll support all of the financial decision-making processes in our Fleet department as well as taking on all ad-hoc reporting and analytics.  The Finance Business Partner for our Fleet team is probably the most technical of all 3 BP roles we’re recruiting for the simple fact that you’ll be looking at the depreciation of our vehicles over time, when is the best time to buy?  What is best to buy?  What will these be worth in the future and when is best to dispose of them?  You’ll also get the chance to be involved in plenty of project work, such as the development of our electric vehicle fleet.  You can expect to be based in our Reading Hub with occasional travel to our Head Office in Darlington

For you to be a success in this role you’ll need to be a Qualified Accountant, in an ideal world you’ll hold the CIMA qualification but we’re equally happy to talk to anyone that holds an ACCA or an ACA qualification.  You’ll need a couple of years’ experience in business partnering senior figures in a corporate environment, with the ability to influence and push back when required. 

We’re offering a really competitive basic salary for the successful candidate as well as a bonus and a company car or car allowance.  There’s also a good company pension, life assurance and 23 days holiday, as well as all of the bank holidays on top of that.  You’ll get the chance to work in our brand new offices in the centre of Reading, with exposure to the most senior figures in our business.  You’ll also get the opportunity to be part of and shape the biggest transformation our Finance function has ever been through
