    This role primarily focuses on business partnering with the Buying and Merchandising teams to support them with their forecasting of intake, margin, product mix and stock. You will have specific responsibility for producing and analysing our stock cashflow forecast, working closely with other Finance teams to refine and improve the model. Another key focus will be long-term planning and producing retail business cases that feed into our 3 year plan.

    • Ensure correct accounting treatment in accordance with IFRS, being pro-active to review and challenge

    • Responsible for the preparation, review, challenge and continuous improvement of robust and accurate balance sheet reconciliations

    • Forecasting on monthly/weekly basis, with continual focus on improving forecasting accuracy and efficiency

    • Analysing movements between forecast and actuals/last year

    • Produce timely, accurate and insightful reporting and analysis

    • Ad hoc analysis and scenario modelling to inform business decision making  

    • Ensure appropriate and robust financial control environment, spanning from the posting of journals to assisting with supporting documentation for the external audit

    We’d love to meet someone with…

    • Commercial awareness.

    • Good communication/ interpersonal and influencing skills.

    • A flexible and open to change.

    • Pro-activeness.

    What's in it for you?

    We will give you a competitive salary, BIG staff discount, discretionary bonus scheme, sample sales and pension matching, but also a fantastic bunch of flexible benefits that focus on your health, wealth & inner self for you and your friends & family.

    We are all equal!

    We’re committed to creating an inclusive workforce.  We believe in a world where you have the freedom to explore and express yourself without judgement, no matter who you are or where you’re from.
