An outstanding opportunity for a highly analytical and commercially minded qualified Accountant to join a fast growth branded business in a Commercial Financial Controller capacity.

Our client is a well-established business in the retail sector. With a multi-site national presence and a dynamic, fast paced and hardworking culture they are enjoying a period of growth. To support the next phase of their impressive growth they are looking to recruit a Commercial FC to develop their growth strategy through insight and analysis across a whole range of commercial metrics.

Key responsibilities will include (but are not limited to):
* Operational management and manipulation of the Excel based business model
* Budgeting and forecasting including the development of new models and dashboards
* Group cashflow forecasting
* Management and development of the MI system
* Development of pricing models and competitor analysis
* Weekly and monthly reporting of commercial performance and results
* Product costings and margin / profitability analysis

The ideal candidate could potentially come from a couple of different backgrounds. You could either be an ACA qualified Accountant with experience in practice looking to make their first move into industry with a highly analytical mindset. Alternatively, you could already have clearly demonstrable achievements in a commercially focused finance role working closely to support and influence the decision making of senior stakeholders up to board level in a manufacturing sector business.

You will have exceptional communication skills and be able to clearly articulate complex financial insight for both finance and non-finance professionals alike. You will enjoy both working as part of a team whilst also being comfortable working independently to achieve tasks and meet deadlines.

Clearly you will need to have very strong Excel and finance system skills. You will be able to manipulate and develop complex financial models in Excel using a variety of formulas and techniques to deliver insight and analysis across key performance metrics for the business. You will be comfortable working with large volumes of data, being able to analyse and identify business critical commercial insight.
