International exposure in a growing business

  • Help support our international business to thrive
  • Deliver best practice in this expanding team
  • Shape our future and yours

We’re incredibly proud to be the nation’s favourite coffee shop brand* Now, as we’re expanding into new countries across the globe, we have even greater ambitions. We want to inspire the World to love great coffee! Showcasing our coffee credentials and putting our people at the front and centre of our business.

Who we are looking for

You’re a business-smart AAT qualified accountant who’s either working towards a CIMA/ACCA qualification, or you have the experience to match it. Ideally you are up-to-speed with NAVISION and / or Hyperion and Smartview, but equally, we like that you have an attention to detail, are logical and methodical through-and-through, have exceptionally high work standards and can back your superb Excel skills with great interpersonal and communication skills. That’s because you’ve got plenty of experience of working in a dynamic reporting and control team and understand the workings of a multi-site hospitality or retail business. Any international experience is ideal, but not essential. And if you’ve had the chance to support a financial controller so that you’ve gained commercial finance experience it’s bound to help, but bring us your willingness to learn and we’ll sure you’ll fit right in.

A bit about the role

We’re taking the Costa experience to new markets. Yet to give them the chance they need to succeed, and avoid risk where possible, they’ll need you. You’ll help with the accurate accounting, reporting and invoicing of all our international franchise and equity royalties, as well as assist with the analysis of results. You’ll also support our operational teams by providing robust, weekly sales and KPI reports and strengthening business controls –  making recommendations for improvements where you see fit. Naturally, everything your do will need to be compliant and to the highest standards as laid out by our financial control framework. And with some 1,200 stores to report on, it’s a role that’s going to stretch and challenge you.

So bring us your unique blend, together with ambition and experience and in return we’ll give you a competitive salary, a very achievable yearly bonus, plenty of benefits and more coffee than you could dream of to enjoy in a supportive environment.
