Commercial Business Analyst
NZ$100,000.00 - NZ$105,000.00 / annum
11 August 2019
Finance and accounting
My client is a large NZ business with operations across NZ & Australia. The business operates in the manufacturing sector and is an iconic NZ brand. Privately owned, the business is large and continues to expand its operations. With a recent change to the business, this role is newly created. The role sits within the commercial finance team that operationally supports the business.
The role of Business Analyst will support the Commercial Managers who partner their regions. This area focuses on the sales and marketing activities of the business and truly works with the business. You are supported by a core Financial team so this role really does get away from the month end process - you will never post a journal again!
Your responsibilities will include
- 50% project and ad hoc analysis, geared around analyzing the business KPI's and helping the operations understand their financial data
- 50% of your time will be more structured monthly analysis, taking the P&L prepared by the accounting team and really deep diving into the numbers to explain the monthly performance
- Assisting with the preparation of the annual budget
- Business partner the sales and marketing teams, driving sales managers and really providing the financial support and analytics to drive performance.
To be considered for this role, we are looking for someone who ideally is a qualified accountant. You will enjoy working with the operational people, not just finance. You will have strong business partnering skills and can demonstrate the ability to drive performance meetings from a financial standpoint. It is likely you will have FMCG, retail, or manufacturing experience as these industries will help you support the business. Additionally, you will need to have strong IT skills particularly in excel having demonstrated your ability to turn data into information. My client is really looking for a team player and someone that will really work collaboratively with the rest of the commercial finance team.
