Finance Manager

Salary: Negotiable

Nottinghamshire - Permanent

Posted: 2 months ago

Ref: D0023673



If your appetite is hungering for a more commercial role in a fast paced environment where your impact will be directly on the upward direction of margin and sales this is one you’ll want to take a bite of.



Partnering with product, marketing and supply chain senior leadership team to provide insight and challenge. Armed with data and insights from your team of 3 analysts you’ll be the commercial guardian. Like a fine wine pairing this role works brilliantly because of the delicate balance of coaching and developing your team, being a key member of the management team (reporting into the Head of Commercial Finance) and ultimately the margin master.

The first question we ask ourselves when considering where we are in our career path is not normally “am I being paid well”?. More likely you’ll be pondering on whether what you are doing is really “making a difference” within the organisation or where/when your next “opportunity for development” will open up. Equally you may feel that culturally your organisation is moving in a different direction and you’re feeling a disconnect. There could be a million others, leader, location, team but if any are leaving you feeling its time you thought about what it looks like outside of your employer then dip your toe and let’s talk about what’s next.



What it takes is a qualified accountant (ideally 3 years + PQE) who can demonstrate their finely honed skills of partnering, for us that includes influence, negotiation and communication. The ability to translate insights to those not from a finance background and challenge appropriately will be needed in your toolkit. Not a slave to the data but fervent about attention to detail, this role will be working with the SLT and the exec so you’ll want it to be right. The size and scale of the operation is big but the team is right sized so expect a good work load you won’t be looking for something to do.
