My client is one of the largest B2B service providers in the UK. They provide both in-house and consultancy style services to blue chip clients. There has been an internal restructure in the Head Office and an upskilling of the senior management team in the finance function. In turn, we are seeking to recruit a new Finance Business Partner to support the Finance Director of Central Functions.
Whilst some of the challenges of the sector have been well documented, the business has brought in a new, high calibre senior management team and they are building a high class finance function. This includes bringing in functional Finance Business Partners to the Central Functions Finance team. The Finance Business Partner role forms a key part of a growing team, with expanding responsibility for the Group’s overhead, whilst focusing on working closely with HR & Finance. This is an excellent opportunity for a highly motivated individual to drive change and develop strategic relationships with key Finance and HR stakeholders from within the wider organisation.
For the first few months, the incumbent will be required to travel to a regional office in Bristol occasionally. The amount of time spent here will be managed by the individual.
The successful candidate will be a qualified accountant (ACA / CA / CIMA) with either industry experience or will come from a Transaction Services or Consulting team in a professional services firm. You will have an excellent academic profile and be highly numerate, with strong Excel and financial reporting systems capabilities. The successful candidate will be an articulate communicator and highly skilled in developing relationships with non-finance colleagues at all levels across the business. In addition, strong commercial awareness and experience of working in a commercial finance role is crucial. We are looking for a personable finance professional who is keen to challenge the status quo, drive for continuous improvement and implement change.
