PE Backed Market Leading Service Provider
- Hybrid / Essex
- £100,000 + Bonus + Benefits
Our client is a market leading Private Equity backed business with revenues in excess of £300m generated in the UK and Europe. The company has developed extremely strong relationships with a core client base, making it the “go to” provider to most leading companies in its sector. There is considerable scope to drive margin improvement across the business, as well as a unique opportunity to create significant value by moving to a subscription-based model.
This new role consolidates existing positions and has been created to enhance financial forecasting and analysis and to provide better business insights for the Executive Management Team. The Head of FP&A will manage a team of 3, working with the EMT members and across the Financial Leadership Team to support and challenge operational performance and financial outcomes by business unit and geography. The FP&A team produces value added KPI reporting and analysis for the EMT and is tasked with the financial stewardship of all budgeting, forecasting and analysis of actual reporting. This role is the right-hand person to the CFO and will work closely with the CEO to provide business insights and to prepare all internal Exec Board reporting and external shareholder and lender reporting.
Applicants should be qualified accountants, with a first-class academic record and have excellent analytical skills that have been gained in a commercial environment, as well as proven FP&A experience. Proven skills in business partnering, relationship building, influencing, and negotiating are essential, as the position requires a strong leader who can build and develop a ‘best in class’ FP&A team. Excellent interpersonal skills, both written and verbal, are a prerequisite, as well as the ability to work and thrive in a fast-paced, multi-tasked and multi-channel environment. Experience integrating newly acquired businesses will be a definite advantage, as will any exposure to commercial pricing.
