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 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 Operational teams across the UK, and you’ll provide analytical and commercial support to the Operations Director and their senior management team.  You’ll support all of the financial decision-making processes across the Operation as well as taking on all ad-hoc reporting and analytics.  The Finance Business Partner for the Operations team is probably the biggest of all 3 BP roles we’re recruiting as you’ll manage a team of 4 people alongside your day to day duties.  You’ll be taking a strategic look at cost control across all our sites, you’ll be managing the headcount from a finance perspective, you’ll have input into the financial KPI’s across the UK and you’ll also have responsibility for budget setting and reforecasting.  You’ll also support the senior Ops team with any branch openings or closings.  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 territory and operational meetings

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
