Commercial Finance Manager
Why is our Commercial Finance Manager right for you?
This is a crucial role within the Commercial Finance Department at Worldpay, and will require a switched on individual to provide commercial insight on financial data to key stakeholders within the business. As you develop into this role, you will be allowed to have the autonomy to take a lead on specific areas of commercial finance to help the business make decisions. Does that sound like you? Does working within a UK division of a FTSE 100 business delivering almost £0.5bn of revenue align with your career ambition?
What can you expect to be doing on a day to day basis?
Supporting the Senior Finance Business Partner, you will be responsible for developing KPI and milestone reporting to enable the business to make effective decisions when looking at performance drivers. You will review and understand financial performance against prior year, budget and forecast, which will then allow you to take that data to highlight trends appearing to the relevant stakeholders and make recommendations on risks and opportunities based on this to increase profitability across the business.
You will be expected to liaise with key stakeholders on a regular basis, and will play an integral part in shaping commercial commission schemes within the Worldpay UK space to drive desired behaviours, while challenging proposed agreements at various working groups and committees.
Alongside this, you will be expected to support the development of annual budgets and targets, and will ensure that effective processes are in place around revenue, costs and associated balance sheet. You will also be expected to deputise for the Senior Finance Business Partner at times.
What will make me right for the role?
We are looking for a bright and ambitious individual who wants to further their career and take on additional responsibility. This role will suit people from Practice looking for their first move into industry, or somebody with 2 years+ experience in industry looking to make that next step toward a Finance Business Partnering role. You will be either newly or recently qualified (ACA or CIMA or ACCA) with up to 3 years post qualification experience.
We are looking for somebody with the ability to analyse large volumes of financial data and provide commercial insight to the Senior Finance Business Partner and the business. You will need to have excellent communication skills and be able to translate financial data into something that makes sense to stakeholders across the business.
Advanced Excel skills are essential to this role, as well as being comfortable dealing with large budgets and volumes of financial data. Any experience with Access, Oracle or Hyperion would be desirable.
The ability to work in a spirited and supportive way with colleagues is also a must have in this role!
