Senior FP&A Manager
Following a high profile internal move, an opportunity has arisen for an accomplished FP&A professional to join a profitable division of one of the UK’s best-known FMCG brands. Reporting into a dynamic Director of FP&A, this is an opportunity for an individual to join the business at a pivotal juncture as the focus on improving the value that the FP&A function can add in supporting commercial decision making increases.
The successful candidate will be responsible for translating data into meaningful insights for Senior Management in order to support business decisions. You will use your accurate reporting, proactive analysis and well-planned processes to successfully collaborate with Regional Finance Directors and non-finance stakeholders.
Key responsibilities will include:
- Creating accurate and insightful reports and presentations relating to global divisional results and forecasts for key stakeholders at Senior Management and Board level;
- Driving continuous improvement across all FP&A activities, such as reporting and forecasting activities;
- Managing & leading the delivery of the global divisional consolidation for monthly, quarterly and annual results in addition to quarterly, annual and 5-year forecasts; and
- Coordinating the work of the more junior members of the FP&A team (not direct reports of this role), helping them to build and grow their experience.
Candidates must have extensive FP&A knowledge and experience in an FMCG (or similar) environment. They will, as a result, have a solid understanding of supply chain processes/challenges and gross margin analysis and must be able to demonstrate this at interview. They will be credible, confident and articulate with an excellent academic track record and a recognised accountancy qualification. This, coupled with the ambition and desire to excel in their career, will render an individual an excellent fit for this role.
