A Finance Business Partner is wanted by a >£400m division of a particularly high-growth P/E backed insurance company. Established around 25 years ago, both the division and group have grown quickly (both organically and by acquisition) to form a market leading business with a truly global presence. The company is well backed and plans to continue their expansion; this is therefore a wonderful opportunity to join them.

·Provide high quality and timely advice, information, analysis, reporting and interpretation to support effective decision making and performance management.

·Lead business units in the setting of annual budgets and mid-year forecasts.
·Production of finance packs with commentary.
·Support the improvement of management reporting and analysis.
·Ad hoc projects (e.g. prepare financial models for company acquisitions and team lifts.)
The ideal candidate for the role of Finance Business Partner will be a qualified accountant (ACA / CIMA / ACCA) who has already gained some analytical and / or business partnering experience in an international business; insurance experience would also be a bonus. Strong Excel and stakeholder management skills are a pre-requisite whilst attention to detail, the ability to constantly innovate and a self-starting attitude are also all expected. Significant opportunities exist for candidates to progress.
