In order to support future growth and the achievement of sales, margin and commercial objectives, Bestway Wholesale is expanding its commercial finance team and is looking for a driven and motivated Finance Business Partner to support the Sales teams and other support functions.

This is an exciting position, where you will act as a trusted partner to senior managers in a range of functions, predominantly Sales but also Distribution, Supply Chain, Marketing and other Head Office functions, and will be responsible for ensuring robust financial control, providing insightful and action-oriented analysis, and developing the financial awareness of these departments. 

The role will deliver internal financial and management reporting and analysis to agreed deadlines, as well as providing guidance and support for business managers. Key responsibilities of this role will include:

  • Acting as a trusted partner to the Sales Director and other senior management, ensuring that they receive sufficient financial and non-financial performance information to monitor progress and inform decision-making
  • Building strong working relationships with operations and depot teams, allowing you to challenge, influence and become a key participant in decision making processes
  • Owning financial management, control and reporting for the Sales department
  • Working closely with the Finance Director and Head of Commercial Finance to drive overall financial performance

  • Supporting budgeting, planning and forecasting activities for Sales, Supply Chain, Marketing and Head Office
  • Preparing investment appraisals and on-going benefits tracking for new initiatives
  • Assisting with Group and business wide projects including improving existing system functionality and enhancing management information

To take on this exciting and rare opportunity you will be a qualified accountant (ACA, CIMA or ACCA) preferably from an FMCG, Retail or Wholesale background with an excellent understanding of key concepts and drivers in the sector. You will have advanced MS Excel skills and be comfortable with financial reporting and business intelligence tools.

You will be able to identify opportunities to improve processes, outputs and ways of working and have the ability to see the “big-picture” as well as question the detail.

An excellent communicator, teamed with strong leadership skills to coordinate on group reporting, you will be able to demonstrate when you have managed change in a fast moving environment, be a self-starter and proactive, with a focus on improving processes and quality at all times.

This is a fantastic opportunity for an ambitious individual to join a successful company at a time of significant change. Working in our finance team, you will gain exposure to senior management, commercial and operational teams across Bestway, and your work will make an impact from day one.

We offer an attractive benefits package including a salary commensurate with experience, generous holiday entitlement, private healthcare and a contributory pension.
