You’ve found yourself talking to your significant others, spouse, family and friends about how your job is going OK but you really want to be able to get closer to the business and really help them make sense of the numbers to enable to drive the business forward. That’s what you are really passionate about. Yes, you can give management a figure but what you really want to do is make a difference. It is being able to challenge and articulate what that means for overall business performance and ultimately profit. No longer tucked behind your desk reporting but getting out with the senior leadership teams to healthily debate the commercial.
THE ROLE & RESPONSIBILITIES
That’s it I hear you cry, so what will I be getting stuck into?
Analyse promotions and really dig into the commercial returns
Partner with the teams deciding on price, promotions and products
Budgeting, forecasting, management accounts & balance sheet recs
Working with the FC on projects to help drive continous improvement
Producing information for the board which ultimately impacts commercial decisions
So you’re still with me and you’ll now be thinking, sounds great but what are they looking for in me? They absolutely want you to bring your qualification whether it be CIMA/ACCA or ACA. Equally in your toolkit you’ve got experience of working in an FMCG environment. Most importantly you’ll show them bags of gravitas. Able to confidently communicate up and down the organisation to make the complex simple and influence where appropriate. Lastly you’ll know whether this is your or not, are you up for working at pace. Not being overly concerned with finding the last pence rather committing that time to revealing the meaning in the number?
