Senior Finance Business Partner – Global Functions Production & Supply Chain  

Competitive Salary

Dunstable, Bedfordshire

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

We need someone who really understands production, and raw products, as you’ll be offering financial support to ensure we maximise the return on our own in-house Roastery, as well as across the entire supply chain. It’s why you’ll probably come from an FMCG, food manufacturing background as your advice will be essential to overall cost control and growth.

A bit about the role
You’ll constructively challenge and deliver commercial analysis to help inform group-wide buying, stock management and production decision-making. Partnering with global leads and executive directors, you’ll optimise the efficiency of our Roastery, as well as evaluate 3rd party suppliers and logistics management. You’ll:

  • provide accurate and insightful financial analysis
  • produce concise business cases with clear recommendations
  • prepare detailed budgets and forecasts
  • partner with global leads and executive directors to deliver PBIT and capex targets
  • build strong stakeholder and supplier relationships and drive efficiencies.

Our ideal candidate will have:

  • a financial qualification (ACA / ACMA / ACCA )
  • proven experience of supporting an operational director or business unit with business analysis and investment decisions
  • strong analytical, forecasting, Excel, presentation and relationship-building skills
  • the ability to influence through fresh thinking and to champion new business initiatives
  • the skills to take complex financial information and present it in a non-technical, yet meaningful, way.

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.
