Financial Control Assurance Director

Location: Cambridge

At AstraZeneca in Cambridge, we're offering an exceptional opportunity to build on your financial controls/assurance experience and develop a career with a global, FT100 leading pharmaceutical business. As Financial Control Assurance Director, you'll be a partner to the business - involved as much in evaluating risks as managing SOx and testing controls. You'll work with global operations teams, develop an unrivalled understanding of finance transactional processes and gain scientific insights. Longer-term, there will be a wealth of career possibilities, both in the UK and Internationally.

We're in the midst of a major transformation to become leaders in our core disease areas. The unfolding journey is having a significant impact on our financial control framework - making it an exciting and challenging time to join our established Financial Control Corporate Governance team.

Main duties and responsibilities

As part of the team, you'll provide thought leadership and drive operational excellence in financial control, both across AstraZeneca and relevant third-party providers. You'll implement effective financial control programmes for business-as-usual, project and transformational activities, addressing SOx and other compliance requirements. Building strong working relationships to understand organisational/governance areas of AstraZeneca will be pivotal.

You'll work closely at a local level to support end-to-end process thinking and optimise controls, as well as providing regional financial controls/assurance training. Where necessary you will also work with newly acquired companies to establish an appropriate financial controls framework.

Essential requirements
  • Full financial qualification
  • Experience of financial controls/assurance requirements
  • Strong technical knowledge including SOx requirements/regulations
  • Knowledge of the Pharmaceuticals Industry
  • Outstanding influencing and communication skills, written and verbal
  • Rigorous thinking and execution capabilities
  • Pragmatic approach, ability to simplify complex ideas and capabilities
  • Highly motivated self-starter; ambitious team and enterprise player.
