Financial Analyst and Business Support
We’re currently recruiting for a Financial Analyst to be based at our site in Harrogate, North Yorkshire. This is a full-time, permanent position.
As a Financial Analyst, you will have an active involvement in the preparation of the annual operating budget and a twelve month rolling forecast on a monthly basis, for various Global Support and SG&A (Selling, General and Administrative Expense) areas, the largest of which being GCO (Global Commercial Organization). This entails working with Functional Management to ensure accuracy of expense forecasts including headcount projections and ensuring effective modelling processes are used to predict other expense items. Effective communication and coordination of forecasts and projections is also required. At month-end the Financial Analyst will work with Controllership to ensure actuals are checked and any variances to forecast are understood and communicated. Experience with Hyperion will be an advantage.
When supporting global functions, reporting should be developed to help Managers monitor their Functions in an appropriate global view and to help monitor their function’s effectiveness. The Financial Analyst will also be responsible for supporting SG&A on ad-hoc strategic projects as needed.
