Experience level
Manager
The right financial and business decisions have made Amazon what it is today. As a Finance Manager, you'll help us optimise our finances so that we can enhance our customer experience even more and navigate the fast-changing business environment. This role is an opportunity to act as the key finance leader for a strategic programme and get really involved with shaping our business.

Our Finance Managers at this level take a hands-on role to boost our business performance and efficiency. You'll collaborate with partners in different areas of our business to provide insights on improvements in our operational performance. That will involve deep diving into data, managing our planning processes, and giving team members guidance on more ambiguous areas of our cost structures. You'll also help other teams across the EU to gain access to vital insights and to collaborate.

You'll be owning and leading projects and programs as well as you will be working closely with partners to help inform and guide their key decisions. This role is predominantly based in one of our corporate offices but may also be based in one of our sites with opportunities to work remotely on occasion.

Key job responsibilities

Build financial models to drive business decisions and make judgement calls on challenges using your understanding of Amazon's cost structure

Lead projects by overseeing timelines, priorities, auditing quality and resolving issues

Generate insights from financial data, identify opportunities for greater efficiency, and communicate findings with the leadership team to drive business actions

Own the financial and operational plan and financial reporting, create scalable processes and monitor teams for accuracy

A day in the life

This role will partner the AMZL ACES (Amazon Customer Excellence System) business team who are responsible for continuous improvement in our operational processes as well as launching new last mile delivery products.

About the team

Have you ever ordered a product on Amazon and, when the box arrived, you wondered how it got to you so fast? Have you wondered where it came from and how much it cost Amazon to deliver it to you?

Amazon Logistics, or AMZL, handles 'last mile' delivery duties in partnership with third-party distribution businesses. We utilise creative thinking and continuous improvement initiatives to get millions of physical products into the hands of our customers. Our goal is to make our customers' delivery experience as smooth as possible and roll out global delivery solutions for our newest concepts.

There are two sides to what we do. Our 'under the roof' associates process millions of products for dispatch to our delivery teams. Our team is people-focused and supportive, particularly as lots of our people work through the night. We focus mostly on operations, with 24/7 shifts in most of our locations.

Meanwhile, our 'on the road' people work with Amazon Flex - a network of delivery contractors. Every year, we continually raise the bar for customer experience with new, innovative delivery services. We look for new ways to overcome industry wide logistics challenges and new ideas to reduce our carbon footprint, supported by a portfolio of cutting-edge vehicles (including Electric Vehicles) and technology to help us do just that.

We are open to hiring candidates to work out of one of the following locations:

London, GBR
