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 Sales & Marketing teams, and you’ll provide analytical and commercial support to the Sales & Marketing Director and their senior management team.  You’ll support all of the financial decision-making processes in the department as well as taking on all ad-hoc reporting and analytics.  The Finance Business Partner for the Sales & Marketing team is probably the most commercially focussed of all 3 BP roles we’re recruiting, you’ll be looking at things like our commission scheme, is this working?  What would make it more rewarding?  How can we make it better?  You’ll also be involved in any promotions the business decides to run, is it profitable?  What are the numbers?  You’ll also get involved in looking at the ROI on any Marketing campaigns we run and will be heavily involved in looking at the viability of our customer portfolio.  You can expect to be based in Reading for around 3 days a week and you’ll spend some time on the road attending various Sales & Marketing meetings around the business

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
