Due to our continued success and growth, BGL Group have created a new position with the Group Finance Team and are looking for an Associate Finance Director to own and manage our FP&A and Treasury Teams.
As a strategic leader you’ll ensure that the Group Executive and Board have a clear understanding of business performance, and that the regular insight you provide through monthly reporting, forecasting and planning processes supports commercial decision making. You’ll be comfortable with challenging the status quo, whilst supporting and contributing to the business units. You will play a pivotal role providing the group with capital & liquidity planning, debt financing and related treasury matters.
Being responsible for these crucial areas of finance will involve making recommendations to the Board to secure their approval of dividends, plans and forecasts, capital buffers, policies, etc., as well as monitoring the Group’s revenue and cost performance and providing the divisional FD’s with challenges and support in improving that.
