  • Attending key meetings with Business Units to explain the approach, analysis and key recommendations, influencing the strategy
  • Providing clear and thorough presentations for communicating project savings and negotiation strategies to senior stakeholders
  • Developing and producing  ‘best in class’ templates and models for use within the team and across the commercial function
  • Owning and managing regular reporting for use in commercial e.g. commodity and currency data
  • Managing and evolve tracking documents to provide accurate data for use within and outside the team

What do I need to have?
Ideally experience in either a buying, commercial or commercial finance setting combined with excellent analytical and problem solving skills. You’ll also need to be confident at communicating with key stakeholders and influence across different levels of the business. Finally, we need you to be confident in using the Microsoft Office suite, particularly Excel.
