Job Description

Critical in the journey from UK market leader to international expansion will be the role of Head of FP&A and Business Partnering. And with Private Equity funding it s not a question of if but more when!

You will be a catalyst for growth and a real change agent. So adding insight through information, change through challenge and financial improvement through forecasting will all be in a day's work.

Directly reporting into the CFO this role will suit an ambitious finance professional. Because the CFO will mirror your commitment to your career providing development opportunities and support enhancing your career.

Your new role

This role is newly created. And that s both part of the challenge and opportunity. Because there s no trodden path or established processes. And whilst this allows you to put your own stamp on it, this level of ambiguity isn t for everybody.

The key responsibilities are:

  1. FP&A activities providing clear insight and commentary to the Board.
  2. Supporting and challenging strategic initiatives such as sales pipelines, pricing and margins.
  3. Delivering better financial outcomes by identifying risks and opportunities and driving action across the business.
  4. Provide forward looking analysis such as benchmarking and competitor analysis.
  5. Seeking efficiencies and opportunities for optimisation.
  6. M&A activity.
