About you and your experience 

As Financial Controls Manager at Bel UK, you will be working closely with the Finance Director and will be an essential member of the global finance team. You will be responsible for maintaining the financial records of the company and giving relevant financial and commercial insights for business decisions.

Ideally you will hold an accountancy qualification (ACCA, ACA or CIMA) and have a keen eye for detail. And to stand out from the crowd, you need to be able to see examples of revenue growth management in your work history. It would also be great if you have experience working in the FMCG and retail sector, but this is not a deal-breaker. 

Your key responsibilities as Financial Controls Manager 

As Bel UK’s incoming Financial Controls Manager, you will be undertaking a range of activities, including, but not limited to: 

  • Reporting of P&L
  • Coordinate budget process
  • Preparation and analysis of costs of goods and sourcing of products
  • Perform 'what-if' analysis on product profitability vs benchmark
  • Support and challenge Sales in their commercial negotiations
  • Maintain all templates and develop new tools on Power BI
  • Business partner with sales, marketing and supply chain
  • Prepare monthly performance review with gap analysis
  • Management of one direct report - Financial Analyst
