A global Media business is looking for a FP&A Manager. The FP&A Manager will report to the Head of FP&A for the UK and serve as the number 2 within the function as part of the wider Commercial Finance team. The FP&A Manager position will play a key role in the yearly budget process, forecasting and the five year plan as well as serving as a Business Partner to the UK Executive team.
The FP&A Manager position is a high profile role and is a crucial position within the Commercial Finance function. This role will manage one person in the team but will also have supervisory responsibility for a wider team of five. This individual will additionally deputise for the Head of FP&A in their absence and directly liaise with the Exec team on a day to day basis.
This role will investigate month end variance, provide incisive Board reporting, deliver insightful projections and manage the overhead budgets for the UK business. Therefore it will play a key role in all of the major decisions the business will make over the next couple of years.
The business offers a fast paced and dynamic environment and the individual will require formidable energy levels and drive. There will be excellent opportunities for progression and development as well as great exposure to the business within the role.
The ideal profile will be a qualified accountant (ACA / CIMA / ACCA or equivalent) with some post qualified experience in a similar role. Exposure to the Media or Technology sector would help but relevant sector experience is not essential. The most important attribute will be the individual's ability to communicate across the wider organisation.
