Position Financial Business Partner
In your role as Financial Business Partner it is you who gains oversight over and keep track of all financial matters within the company and it’s subsidiaries.
You team up with the CFO and based on the strategy of the company, you monitor the performance. You think in and dream of KPI’s. Some are already in place and others you fine tune or rebuild them yourself. Not all KPI’s seem relevant to an outsider, but you know why you need them. Why? Because you want to proof your financial fingerspitzengefühl with relevant data. In this way you are able to link all relevant ‘details’ to substantiate your analyses of either the under or over performance of the business. It will be you who feeds the insight in the profitability of ‘everything’.
It goes without saying that as a financial professional you are able to bring it down to simple matters like debit & credit / profit & loss so stakeholders like shareholders, investors, banking people and others understand what you mean. So you also help with the various monthly, quarterly and yearly reports.
Next to this you participate in working out business cases and building what-if scenarios and other ad-hoc reporting.
To top it off: you have the ability to explain finance to non-finance people like business owners: what does it say, what does it mean, how can I help so you gain better insight and feeling.
Bachelor or Master degree with a least 8 years experience in (now) a senior finance role. An international retail environment is preferred.
Good understanding BI tooling and Excel.
Strong communication skills, verbal and written, for the necessary liaising with various internal and external key people.
Entrepreneurial, self-organized, can-do / will-solve attitude without losing reality as a true business partner.
