Commercial Finance Manager

Commercial Finance Manager
Location: Hybrid split of 2 days home and 3 days office (Wilmslow)
Hours of Work: Full time.

We are the Citation Group.

We offer colleagues and clients an opportunity they will not gain at many other businesses.

We are interested in growth, investment and service excellence.

We have never and will never grow our business by cost-cutting or tying people up in bureaucracy.

We don't do politics - we want people focused upon actions and delivery.

We don't do micro-management - we empower, support and innovate.

We are leaders, not empire builders and we love our business.

The Impact division of the Citation Group is a collection of high-growth businesses providing valuable eLearning, Screening, SSIP accreditations and cybersecurity services to UK SMEs.

If you love finding problems or highlighting future trends and being responsible for devising solutions to help support and grow the division, this is the role for you.

We are an incredibly successful and growing group, filled with great people with big ambitions.

We are looking for someone to help take our commercial finance area to the next level and create a best-in-class function that supports our ambitious growth plans.

With an analytical mindset, commercial approach and a want to ever improve processes, it's a given that you are a whizz with Excel and you are never fazed by multiple data sources and complex models.

You will be comfortable communicating with finance and non-finance colleagues alike, to enable our business strategy and make a real difference.

The role
We are looking for an experienced, commercially astute, ambitious, finance professional who wants to step into a business that will challenge, enhance, refine and build on these skills.

To be suitable for this role you will need to utilize excellent Excel data extraction, transformation, and modelling skills, and couple this with the ability to present/communicate key insights coherently to the senior leadership team, and Head of Commercial finance.

Experience with SQL, Power BI/Power Query, Tableau, or similar programs is highly desirable.

You will also be required to work with a range of different teams across the group, using strong communication and people skills.

Your colleagues whose expertise you will rely on may not be familiar with commercial finance, so the ability to communicate with non-finance professionals will be a requirement.

The successful applicant will be required to take ownership of Commercial Sales and Customer Success reporting across a collection of business units within the division and as a result, we are looking for someone with a strong track record.

Experience in some of the following areas is therefore required:
, Proven business partnering with key stakeholders
, Validating and distributing commercial and customer information within the business on a timely basis
, Experience of budgeting, forecasting and planning
, Analyzing the live business performance metrics against forecast intervals, partnering, supporting & challenging functional leads in delivering and exceeding our plans
, Handling large amounts of data; extracting data from source, manipulating data to build reports / KPIs
, Optimize and develop reporting / dashboards to highlight business performance
With the full support of colleagues in Citation, you will have the tools and support you need to deliver results as you grow with our Company.

About you
, Advanced Excel skills and Excel modelling
, Experience of using Tableau would be an advantage
, Experience in a similar role desirable
, A finance or mathematics qualification advantageous (CIMA / ACA or ACCA)
, A high level of accuracy and a strong eye for detail
, Be able to demonstrate objectivity whilst ensuring financial/data fact is the defining measure
, Confident in highlighting trends and using data to support decisions
