I am recruiting on behalf of an instantly recognizable FMCG company with a global presence and an exceptional reputation. They are seeking a new Brand Financial Controller to provide senior management with key information which will inform crucial decision making regarding one of the portfolio’s most recently acquired brands.
Reporting in to your brand’s Head of Finance, you will be responsible for the line management of three direct reports (two newly qualified accountants and a part-qualified junior). The purpose of your role is to enable the brand to reach its sales and profit objectives. You will do so by taking full ownership of the brand’s P&L, carefully monitoring spend and sales and ensuring adherence to controls. This will entail business partnering with the brand’s sales and marketing teams and regular liaison with the company’s core finance team.
Key tasks and accountabilities will include the following: ownership and management of P&L, careful monitoring of sales and tracking of spend, accurate forecasting, identification of key risks and opportunities, line management of three direct reports, analysing and challenging costs and expenditure efficiencies, maximizing return on investments and undertaking ad hoc financial analysis as required.
As a key driver of all investment decisions relating to the brand, the successful candidate will be a decisive and confident individual who displays acute attention to detail. In order to be considered for this role, you must be a qualified accountant (CIMA / ACA) with demonstrable experience of working for a blue chip business, preferably within the retail / FMCG sector. You will enjoy working within a fast-paced and demanding environment and prove to work well under pressure.
