Job Description

Are you a Qualified Accountant looking for a new and challenging role? We have an opportunity for a Commercial Finance Business Partner that will support the Senior Finance Manager and senior leadership team in focusing on driving business performance!

What you’ll do
 
As the Commercial Finance Business Partner for BSS you will provide first class partnering support to the Commercial Team, Supply Chain Team and Leadership team,  to ensure the best commercial decisions are being made.

You will be responsible for all commercial reporting, working closely with category and supply chain managers and providing finance support. On a daily basis you will be reviewing margin seeking opportunities to improve profitability and challenging/supporting colleagues at all levels of the business around commercial decision making.

You will develop a management information plan, covering category, supplier and customer reporting and you will take ownership of the budgeting, forecasting, corporate plan for sales and margin, working closely with the required stakeholders and wider finance team.

Finally, you will attend the commercial monthly trading meeting to support and challenge the category managers and be the finance representative for all commercial projects.

Is this you?

To be considered, you'll need to be a qualified accountant, ideally with post qualification experience in a relevant industry and be able to demonstrate strong commercial acumen. We are looking for someone who is driven, with experience within a multi site business and excellent communication skills. The role will also have one direct report that you will be responsible for, so people management experience would be beneficial, but not required. In return, we can offer you a long term career opportunity to progress through the organisation, alongside a competitive salary and excellent company benefits. 

What’s in it for you?

Joining the Travis Perkins group means joining a reputable and expanding business offering great company benefits such as discounts across our businesses and the support of an employer who values your development as much as you do.  
 
We’ll also equip you with a benefits package that grows as you grow with the company:
- Competitive performance related bonus
- Save-as-you-earn scheme
- Buy-as-you-earn scheme
- Contributory pension scheme
- Colleague discount across a variety of Group businesses.
