Altum are working with a high-growth, global online fashion retail business to recruit a Finance Analyst.

This is an exciting new role for a strong Finance Analyst to support the continued evolution of planning and analysis to aid decision making. This is a hugely varied role working across the business to develop and improve our global fixed cost management.

 

This role would suit someone who loves digging into the detail, solving problems and finding out what really drives performance, but then can also take a step back explaining and recommending actions to senior management. You’ll be someone who is excited about the opportunity of building tools from scratch to propel understanding and help surface actionable insight and loves working in a fast-paced, high energy and collaborative environment.

 

Key Responsibilities:

  • Business partner with senior stakeholders
  • Deliver quarterly and annual forecast
  • Deliver explanations for the month end cost variances for budgeting purposes
  • Initiate reporting to monitor group fixed cost performance
  • Deliver cost efficiencies
  • Robust financial analysis and modelling, identifying opportunities and exploring trends
  • Ad hoc projects

 

Person specification:

  • Newly or part-qualified accountant (ACA/CIMA/ACCA)
  • Advanced Excel skills (vlookups, Pivots, VBA)
  • Experience in financial modelling (macros)
  • Strong commercial awareness and business acumen
  • Experience in a high growth business
  • Proactive, enthusiastic, ambitious and able to work at pace in a constantly evolving environment

 

If you fit the criteria and are interested in hearing more then please don’t hesitate to apply.
