Private Equity Backed Travel Company
- £70,000 - £80,000 + benefits
Our client is a leading travel company offering expertise in developing a broad range of bespoke tours and holidays for a wide range of overseas customers. They have operations in the UK and Europe and serve customers from all over the world. The company has made a strong recovery since the pandemic and now looks very much on track to get back to pre-Covid performance, as well as creating a strong platform on which to continue with their growth plans.
We are now looking for a highly commercial Financial Planning and Analysis (FP&A) Manager to work closely with the CFO to provide value-add analysis and decision support across the group. The business requires a high level of data analysis and commercial insight into the regular forecasting and budgeting process to help drive trading performance and increase profitability. The role will be incredibly varied and will require candidates to be hands-on and a natural problem solver, who is willing to create commercial processes from scratch to improve performance. With exposure to the Group CFO and Managing Directors of the different business units, this role will require experience and gravitas to operate and work alongside senior stakeholders.
The ideal candidate will be a graduate qualified accountant (ACA/CA/CIMA or equivalent) with proven experience working in a best-in class FP&A function. In depth knowledge of modelling and forecasting is essential, as well as being able to think creatively and analytically. Prior experience of working in a PE backed business is preferable but not essential and candidates will ideally have experience of working with international business units, across multiple regions. This is a fantastic opportunity to join a growing business and work alongside an excellent CFO.
To apply for this role, please use the Apply button, or alternatively, email your CV to Louise Jeffrey: firstname.lastname@example.org quoting reference LJ53001.
Please note that due to the expected volume of applications we will only be able to respond to those candidates whose experience matches the requirements of our client. We are sorry but if you have not heard from us within the next ten days, please assume you have been unsuccessful on this occasion.
